    Here is a rare soda bottle manufactured in Memphis Tn. in the late 20's or early 30's. It is embossed with many marble like bumps covering it's body. There is also Nurling (like on a gun stock) over the body as well. Cross hatching maybe for lack of a better discription.
    I've done multiple searches on the internet and have found only a later bottle with a permanent painted lable applied, but no embossed bottles.
    Conditionis very good with no cracks, chips etc....
    There is a band around both parts of the hour glass areas:

    The top band reads:
    quality beverages (twice)

    The bottom band reads:
    Union botteling co.
    Memphis Tenn

    The bottom is embossed with:

    contents
    [n] 3
    35 (year maybe)
    7 fld. ozs
