Spadeburg Dr. P and others
- Hey gang - just stumbled across this site. I'm an
avid pop bottle collector. I've amassd well over 100
bottle of over 100 different varieties. Yes, I
buy...<br> Spadeburg, your bottle is extremely interesting.
It looks more like a creamer bottle. The mouth
doesn't look to be friendly to a carbonated beverage.
I've never seen any carbonated beverage bottle like
that. Even older bottles tend to have tight necks. <br>
The closest thing I've seen are very old and predate
Dr. Pepper's existence. <br> The logo and diamond
pattern on the pressed glass look to be of a later -
1940s or so design. <br> It's a mystery to me. It might
be a "factory" bottle. The thinness of it would
indicate that it was not meant for delivery out of a
machine. It's possible that it was meant for use in a drug
store wherein the bottle would contain the raw Dr.
Pepper syrup and the water and carbonation would be
supplied on site by the fountain - soda jerk.<br> Since
you are in Texas - home of Dr. Pepper - that would be
a possibility. That might date it to the turn of
the century. <br> Hope that helps - Enkidu.
