    Go here for the history of Martinelli & Co. They're still in business in Watsonville. I know the founder's name was Stephen Martinelli but as to the reversed M.S. intials I'm not sure.

    I emailed Martinelli customer service regarding the M.S. embossed on the bottle. Here is part of the response I got:

    "The bottle you have appears to be one of ours from the 1870 to 1880 period. The “MS” on the bottle stands for “Martinelli Soda” "

    Ha I guess we all should have figured that, right?
