Wonder Orange Soda Glass

Vintage Cups, Glasses and Mugs

It’s interesting to see the different promotional and corporate products made over the years. Every week we will feature a cool retro cup, glass or mug from our large collection. We’ll share what we’ve learned about them and welcome your additional input and comments.

This glass is for Wonder Orange Drink made by the Wonder-Orange Company of Chicago, Illinois. Wonder Orange soda was made with real orange juice and their motto was “The Golden Wonder Drink for Fresh Fruity Flavor”. Wonder Orange was one of the many orange drinks produced in the 1940s to take advantage of the orange craze among consumers. The company appears to have been thriving in the mid-1940s, but seems to have disappeared by the 1950s.

This glass was manufactured by the Federal Glass Company of Columbus, Ohio. Federal opened in 1901 and became the largest machine-made glass manufacturer in the US by 1925. They became a division of the Federal Paper Board Company in the 1950s and stopped making glass products in the late 1970s.

    I have a Wonder Orange Co. glass bottle for Wonder Beverages. It is not dated, I assume from the history above it dates to the 1940s. Does anyone know its value?

    I found a Wonder beverages bottle on Owens Beach at Point defiance park in Tacoma Wa. It’s a seven ouncee returnable which has wear marks on the sides. I assume it got out here through the Eerie and Panama canals.
