Alexander Samuelson of the Root Glass Company in Terre Haute, Indiana, designed the distinctive shape, and it was patented on November 16, 1915.
The bottle was modified and slimmed down to work with the current bottling equipment and went into broader production in 1916. This contour bottle was the only packaging used by The Coca-Cola Company for 40 years until the king-size package was introduced in 1955.
Today, it is still the most recognized bottle in the world, and the shape is used for packaging from the new aluminum can to the 2-liter family size.

Blogging itself evolved lot and I am happy to see the shifts happening over blogosphere and experiencing it.
