Early Crescent City Soda & Mineral Water Mfg.-New Orleans

In the mid to late 1870's C.C.S. & MF was formed at the Pablo Soda 270 & 272 Royal St. address. The first bottle was the squat smooth base soda. This example is 7 3/8" tall and is embossed: C.C.S. & MF / NEW ORLEANS. The glass has nice whittling with minor pin prick nicks, but none on the embossing. It has one tiny lip nick. Also the bottle has been professionally cleaned, but still could use more internal polishing.
Price: $32.00 plus postage

The next bottle is the scarce Ginger Ale & Tonic Beer, same address. It is from a little later period, but before 1894. It has been thoroughly cleaned to mint condition. The bottle has nice whittling and sparkle, Condition is great but has case wear and small dings and moons especially around the base. There are a couple of small shallow open bubbles that were smoothed out during the cleaning process. This bottle displays nice even with the wear.

Price: $50.00 plus postage
