Not a bottle... but a similar type of item. In the garage of the house we recently purchased was what we have found to be an antique carbonator.

it was made in the early 1900s from what we can tell... but other than that we don’t know much about it. Wondering if anyone on here has any experience with them or know if it may have any value.
We want to get it out if the garage... but hopefully to someone who wants it or a museum even if that’s an option.

Any info would be appreciated.

300 psi is getting up there lol.

Back in the day there were probably dozens restaurants or bars that would have wanted this for decor. Not sure what the current situation is for that market though.

There might be sentimental value if you had some more history of where it came from etc.

Oh wow that's quite the find! J.J. McLaughlin was a big soda bottler in Toronto a century ago. They were the company that originally invented and sold Canada Dry before it was bought by Coca Cola.

J.J. McLaughlin Ltd. had two divisions: 1) soda water/ginger ale manufacturing, 2) soda fountain manufacturing and jobbing soda fountain supplies, with the latter part of the business being the larger until Canada Dry started to really take off in the 1920s.
