This one is from a H. Melle & H.Gottke soda from Cincinnati. It has a lot of the iron still intact and the bottle itself is really crude. The pontil push up is much narrower than most my other I/P s. This one came from Ebay.

Nice soda SC . I haven't got that one . Then too there are many sodas from Cincy I do not have . Cincinnati sodas are some of my favorite bottles to collect , and it is refreshing to see bottles from Cincy show up here on the forum . Thanks for posting it .

Hi Jim,
The bottle is just completely covered with small bubbles.
Did they have different size (width) pontil rods? The reason I ask is that I have pontils that are wider than others.

Hey Jamin,
Those are nice looking sodas (the one on the right looks familiar)
Those two sodas are from the same manufacture, but there very different because they're hand made.
That what makes collecting these so nice and unique.

John Cairns had some nice examples. All his colored bottles are considered at least Rare and Extremely Rare. He was first listed as a soda water manufacturer in 1850 at 68 Spruce St. . Cairns & Co was listed at that same address up to 1853. Possibly around 1856 he went into business with Timmermann & Block. In 1857 he was involved with Cairns, Block & Co. and only for that year. He was quite succesful in St. Louis, but left there in around 1872. He eventually died in Hannibal Missouri in 1885 of heart disease. In 1860 his personal estate was valued at $20,000.

All the best,
~Tim

Hey Tim,
NICE NICE NICE colored soda. Just about any St. Louis soda that has color is very hard to find.
Thanks for the history and the post.
