Natural Brand Orange bottle

Good afternoon Ferdinand, once again I come to you with somewhat of a mystery. I have had this bottle for roughly four years, and STILL cannot find any information about it other than what’s embossed on the bottle.

It is made in the art deco style and resembles the antique Schweppes beaker shaped ginger ale bottles. To my knowledge, there isn’t another one out there. Supposedly, a person who saw this on eBay, (I previously had this listed for sale) claimed to have owned a few, but was unable to provide any photos to substantiate his claim. I unearthed this unique bottle in a dump I have been digging in for the past four years and have not come across another, whole or broken. This is embossed with the words “Natural Brand” on the front and back with what seems to be a cluster of oranges embossed on each side where the seam runs up along the bottle. I’m not looking to sell this either way, but have been offered a substantial amount of money for it which leads me to believe it is quite scarce. Any information on the history and rarity of this would be greatly appreciated.

Respectfully ,
Edward DeBlock

[PRG] Edward, pretty cool bottle. I have not seen before. I will put the images out there and maybe we can get a strike!
