Where can you find old seltzer bottles? There are several antique, collectable seltzer bottles on the market, both online and that can also be found in antique stores or flea markets.
There are many antique seltzer water bottles marketed on the internet including the antique New York Seltzer Water bottles that were made in Czechoslovakia in the late 10th century to early 20th century. These bottles are collectables and are only genuine if they have the mark “made in Czechoslovakia” on the bottom of the bottles. The metal top has on it N.Y. Seltzer Co., Detroit, MICH.
Another collectable is the seltzer water bottle made and marketed by Scholtz Brothers Jackson Bottling Company in Philadelphia Pa. Bottle collectors can find this bottle at several websites on the internet.
I also found a very unique seltzer bottle on the internet from a private collector. This bottle was a beautiful and unique antique “Vaseline” glass seltzer bottle. It is not sure if there are any others of this type around but if you think you have found one at a flea market or antique market or store, it must have “W&Co” on the bottom. This bottle is from the late 19th century and has excellent Vaseline glass hand-blown in a swirl shape. If you found any seltzer bottle like this – grab it as it would be a wonderful addition to any collection.
I also found from another private collector a very rare blown cobalt soda seltzer bottle. These bottles are blue swirl glass with an art deco design on etched glass. These bottles will have the mark of “BM” on the bottom of the bottle. This is another unique bottle to keep a look out for at flea markets or antique stores and is quite a fine especially if the metal mechanism on the top is still working. This is true of any glass antique seltzer bottles – the better shape that the metal mechanism on top is and especially if it is still working – the more the bottle is worth and the more it will add to your collection.
EBay has a large selection of antique seltzer bottles that you may be able to get at a bargain bid. In fact, I was very surprised how many there were and in what good shape they all seem to be in. So you should definitely check out EBay.
