Here's my collection of early nyc beverage bottles so far. I've probably posted about all of these at some point but here they are all together. Nice to feel like you're adding to a grouping when you get something instead of just throwing money into an endless pit of things you like. Side note, did the site get a UI update in the past day or two?

Love those! I collect NYC blobs, have most of them but I haven't seen John Cab (?), neither with sideways embossing nor the one which says 1848. What is the embossing on these two? Thank you!

This is the tweddles. I prefer the original's bottles to the sons personally, really deep shades of blue and green on the earlier bottles with some interesting closures although Jr made cool bottles too. My examples been put through the ringer but a deep blue tweddles with a nice applied lip is definitely on the wish list. The tweddles and both John cables are pontiled. The green M. B. & Co sure looks like it should be though

It's John Cable on both with an interesting J. C. monogram. There's some better pics in this thread
Have you seen the bottle second from left before? It's a M. B. & Co NY in green, been wondering if anyone's seen it in any other colors before or knows anything about the company

Bottles_inc, sorry for a belated response. No, I haven't seen M. B. & Co in green. I believe I only saw it in aqua with a regular top. I'm not sure what M. B. stands for, the only name that comes to mind is M. Batelle but they were in Brooklyn. Another company listed at 145 W 35 st is Walsh & O'Neill but I couldn't find any info on that company as well.

All blobs or just early blob sodas?

Great group of bottles

We dug a couple NY pontiled sodas in CT — all cobalt. Tweedles, Dearborn and Knebels. Also have a cobalt southwick & tupper.

I collect CT pontil sodas when I can find them.
