Hello nugget,

There are quite a few variants of the crinkly Crushs, if you look at the link that SODABOTTLEBOB provided above. They are cool bottles, but for the most part quite common.

If you go to fleabay and do a price check on aisle three, I think you might see you're a tad optimistic: 1920s Orange Crush Bottle | eBay ~~~ RARE Orange Crush Bottle Crinkly 7 oz Amber Glass Pat July 20 1920 ~~~ Hard to Find Orange Crush Bottle Crinkly Huge 26 oz Clear Pat July 20 1920

I always liked those amber Orange-Crush bottles. I dug one or two, I still have 'em, even thought they are beat up pretty bad.

Hello nugget,

The crinkly Crushs were used for a number of years. The presence, or absence of embossing on the base is not a good dating tool, unless there is a known date code in conjunction with the glassmaker's mark.

Yes, there were some green Crush:

The link to Michael Rosman's excellent ORANGE CRUSH BOTTLES* - the* ‘KRINKLY’ CLEAR ones** that SODABOTTLEBOB posted above, has an excellent written and graphic history.

Hey nugget,

I'd start with good photos of your bottle. The krinkly clear ones date from 1920 to post WWII. Then it was Mae West time:

Hey nugget,

Sounds bad.

If you wanna get heavy duty crud or crustaceans off of bottles, try the acid bucket bath, but BE CAREFUL.

Get a five gallon bucket with a lid.

Put 1/4" of muriatic acid in the bottom of the bucket, a 1/4" in the bottom of the bottle.

Put the lid on the bucket and leave it be for 3 days. Do this OUTSIDE! Wear rubber gloves and repeat if necessary.

BE CAREFUL The acid gives off strong fumes & nasty vapors. DO NOT INHALE. DO NOT GET IT ON YOU.

Neutralize the Acid with a water & Baking Soda, or Garden lime bath.

Hey nugget,

You can buy it at the hardware store, pool supply, Amazon, etc. Training, you don't need no stinking training...

There are toned down versions: Acid Magic | Buy Safer Muriatic Acid, though I've never tried them.

Temperature extremes and old glass do not mix well.
