Hello everyone! I got this bottle as my local shop had a sale. Ive not been able to find any intel online about the bottler. Looking on zillow at the address shows it is a residential area on one of Philadelphia's old cobblestone streets. It is a ten sided bottle, a decagon! Thanks for any intel.

Love the design. The neighborhood is among Philly's oldest, very close to the Delaare River waterfront.

Atlases from 1895 and 1910 show a soap factory at the site, but several docs from the PA Bureau of Foods and PA Dept of Agriculture list a B. Satinsky as a "soda water maker" in 1912.

By 1921 the business had moved to 135 South Street (about a block away)—according to a Monthly Dairy & Food Division report, where they're are listed as selling "raspberry soda."

On the base is the Star of David. The neighborhood was popular among Eastern European Jewish immigrants (I dug a kosher wine from a business 3 blocks from yours).

Hope this helps. Nice piece of history.
