Neat little bottle. All I can tell you is that there was such a thing as Pluto Water but no company is listed in my book. It's probably the same deal and at some time the company was sold to new owners who put their name with it; or perhaps it was the same company all along and different bottles were embossed differently through the years. That one almost looks small enough to be a sample. Nice one!

Cool bottle! Does it have the devil embossed on the base?

"Pluto Water, America's Physic." It has a very interesting history. Water is from a Spring in Indiana, IIRC. I know there is lots of info available with an Internet search.

It's always possible that this was a knockoff brand, exploiting the reputation and advertizing of Pluto Water.

Let us know what you find.

Hello again all! I was over to the Portland show today and brought this little guy in... Several of the old timers had seen this scarce bottle just a few times over the years... The general consensus was that it was a liquid glue... est guess "rubber cement" They also suggested trying a old city directory for more on the company.. Well that about it for now! Thnx again... Taz
