Eagle Bottling Co


Company Names, addresses, dates1:
  Eagle Bottling Co, 1541 5th Street NW (1921-1939)

Notes:

There was an Eagle Bottling Co in Rhode Island that produced blob tops, but I haven't found any evidence that it's connected to this one.


Bottles:

eagle_02 book # 220
This is an 8.3" clear machine-made crown top bottle embossed:
front shoulder: EAGLE / (picture of eagle)
front heel: THIS BOTTLE / NOT TO BE SOLD / CAP. 7 FLU. OZ.
back shoulder: BOTTLING CO / (picture of eagle)
back heel: WASHINGTON, D.C.
eagle_03 book # 221
These are similar to the bottle above, except they have the words embossed below the pictures of the eagles.
Left is 8.3" aqua embossed:
front shoulder: (picture of eagle) / EAGLE
front heel: WASHINGTON, D.C.
back shoulder: (picture of eagle) BOTTLING CO
back heel: THIS BOTTLE / NOT TO BE SOLD / CAP. 7 FLU. OZ.
Right is identical except it's clear, and what's embossed on the heel is reversed (i.e. "WASHINGTON DC" is under the "BOTTLING CO"). Also, the eagle is facing down on the right one.
eagle_01 book # 222
These are 9.2" clear decco crown top bottles with raised arches, marked the same except the one on the left says 9 FL OZS on the back and the one on the right says 10 FL OZS on the back. The 9 OZ bottle is slightly narrower, but it's hard to tell. They're marked:
front: (picture of eagle) / BIG EAGLE / REGISTERED
back: CONTENTS 10 FL. OZS.
base: EAGLE BOTTLING CO / WASH. / D.C.
