The unembossed Drake’s Style Bottle
25 June 2013
I recently discovered your website and find it to be very informative. I have a question about a Drakes type bottle I recently acquired that I haven’t been able to find any information about. Any help you could give me will be greatly appreciated. It is pretty much exactly the same as a Drakes but there is no embossing and it has 2 unusual corners. It also has a double collar top which I don’t recall ever seeing and only one label panel. It appears to be the same bottle that is in the U.S patent picture on your website. I have included some pictures and can send more if you would like.
Nice to meet you and thanks. What a nice example! I run in to these unembossed Drake’s (most of us call them that) once or twice a year at shows and still can not give you a definite answer about this bottle. They all seem to be from the same mold. The color and character on your example is outstanding. Let’s see if Brian Shultis can add anything. I added some graphics to two of your pictures and re-posted the patent for comparison.
