    Fairbanks & Co. Siphon Bottle value

    We have a siphon bottle with etched text on it, which reads:
    Fairbank & Co.
    12 Lenox St.
    Boston
    Registered

    There is also a fragment of a paper label on the side of it. The top piece looks to be in very good condition compared to some siphon bottles pictured online, and is debossed with Fairbanks & Co. It has what appears to be a glass straw attached to the top, which reaches the bottom of the inside of the bottle.

    I cannot find a seam on the bottle, but there are a lot of bubbles in the glass, which is quite thick.

    We are looking for a value on this (as well as a couple Warner's Safe Kidney & Liver Cure bottles, whose seams extend up to the bottom of the lip).

    Any idea on value? We've had the Fairbanks bottle for more than 20 years and have been cleaning out boxes to try to declutter.

    Thank you.

    Probably about $20. Clear seltzers from big cities are not in high demand, and Fairbanks was a big operation in Boston.

    Thanks for the information. I couldn't find any images of this online, so this helps.
