William Hudson used a Codd closure when he first stated in the soda water business because Carre (Mobile) had the rights to the Mathew's gravitating stopper in Pensacola. There exists at least 3 styles of the Codd bottle he used embossed with his name. One variant appears to be English made and is different from what appears to be later American made Codd bottles. Does anyone have one of the English made Codd stopper and is that the first embossed Codd Hudson used? Thanks for your time.
