To me, this is a really special bottle. Just arrived, it’s like new for being nearly 100 years old (made in ‘28), by Three Rivers Glass, something that appeals to many. I just feel very lucky, very good. Put it right onto the top shelf, where it belongs!

What a great bottle. So clean, it looks like it came right off of the glass company assembly line. I love when they look like that. No chips, scratches or sickness haze. Pretty. Top shelf all the way! Thanks for the eye candy.

Very nice! 3 Rivers made some great sodas...their mold makers must have been top notch!

haven't seen that one before , was so many art deco's made during the 20's and 30's , many out there I haven't even see yet .

most from that era clean up well , maybe depends how much they were used or where they were found but not necessary uncommon to find clean art deco's

I don’t think the era matters, unless what you mean is that the older ones got used less. Then again, they’ve been around longer, giving them more time to suffer.

Here is a listing from Worthpoint, showing the bottle with lots of case wear. A bottle in this condition I simply don’t want. It’s wiped out. I absolutely love how clean my copy is.

Very rarely do I buy bottles with issues. Here are three that have more wear and chips than I care for, but they are Indian bottles, a favorite area, and rare, so I bought them, and still like them. They are really placeholders, but there’s a decent chance I‘ll never come across a better one, especially the Big Chief (middle), from 1926, so early that the design patent is still just applied for.
