    I came across this one in an old box. It says "Prop Lasalle Coca Cola Bottling Co" and "7 FL OZ" on the bottom. I don't see any markings on the sides. The barrel is smooth, but the shoulder and the base are kind of...scalloped? I would guess from the color it is probably a Sprite bottle, but I can't find any similar examples. And I'm guessing 50's era. Anyone have an idea?

      Nice green bottle. But it was not Sprite or Coca Cola. A flavored drink bottled by the Coke Co. They did a lot of these kind of drinks back then. 40's or 50's.

      Possible candidates for bottle design. Possibly 1920's.

      Thank you for your help. If it was a flavored soda, would there likely have been a paper label on the smooth portion of the bottle which would be removed and replaced when the bottle was returned?

      That is a possibility also, but I have never seen one. My girlfriend collects coke bottles and has many 'Coke' flavor drink bottles. but none with PL's.
