This is a 7oz 7Up bottle. As far as my research shows, this particular 7Up logo is ***1950's*** (see comment section) 1939/40 ish. This bottle was produced in Detroit, MI.

    Thanks for the tip! I was definitely off. It's funny though. Based on this, the front is dated 1936-1939 and the back is dated 1940-1946, possibly as late as 1948. So my guess is that it's around 1939 or 1940, based on the discrepancy of the dates for the front and back images.

    Good Evening,
    yeah this piece is from the 70's where did you get your info?

    The user in the comment section provided a link that led me to the conclusion that it is late 30's or early 40's. To me, it appears earlier than 70's. The text on the back, number of bubbles on the front, etc appear to be consistent with a bottle produced in the late 30's or early 40's according to the information in the link that appear to be credible. However, I have found little other information.

    This bottle is not from the 1970's. The girl in the swimsuit and seven bubbles was used during app. the 1939-53 time period, Shortly after that the girl was removed and the seven bubbles remained.

    It doesn't have the anchor, it says Duraglas, has a logo that resembles Saturn, and various numbers (g-94, 3, 47, and 20). So the number that makes most sense is 47.

    That's the one! Sorry, it's hard for me to see some of the details on bottles when they're textured. Thanks for the info and the link!
