    Bottler: Vess Bottling, Greensburg, PA
    Volume: 6.5 fluid ounces

    Notes: On shoulder it is embossed with "VESS DRY 6 1/2 FLD. OZS. / VESS DRY REGISTERED". Below that it is embossed with "VESS DRY 6 1/2 FLD. OZS. / VESS DRY BOTTLE PATENTED". The base is embossed with "GREENSBURG, PA." I believe this hourglass art-deco style is from the 1930's.

      Nice Bottle!
      I have basically the same bottle with no city mentioned, however on the bottom of mine it has the code 28-S-1, I believe this code to represent 1928 - American Bottle Company - Streater, Illinois
      The little bit of research I've done on Vess Dry tells me your bottle probably dates from say 1928 to 1935. All the ads for Vess Dry I see from newspaper archives only date from 1929 to 1935.
      Hope this helps

      Nice looking bottle, I saw one just like it yesterday but it was shown from Meadville, Pa. on the bottom.

      motelmark, thanks it's always nice when they have the cities on the bottom. I miss that about soda bottles.
