Antique Bottles - Soda Water

Soda Water is basically artificially flavored or unflavored carbonated water. The process of carbonated water dates back to the late 1700s. By 1810 druggists were selling homemade unflavored seltzer with flavors being added to the solution in the mid 1800s and by 1880 flavoring was a standard additive.

Soda Water Bottles are not unique in design since the manufacturers had to produce them cheap to keep up with demand. Soda water bottles could be distinguished among other bottles by their lettering, logos, embossing and labels.

With advent of the soda bottle and the use of carbonation, the problem of the corks blowing out due to the increased pressure caused by the carbonation brought about many different inventions of different type closures. Bottle manufacturers had to provide a much stronger type of bottle which eventually led to the heavy glass walled blob type soda bottle. Some of the more common closures were the Hutchinson Soda Water type wire stoppers, lighting stoppers and Cod stoppers.
