I’m just here drooling on your thread again... or is that a re-drool? Anyway, it’s clear... you win! You just have some amazing cobalts, for sure.

Websters Mineral Water, 1850's ish. LEON.View attachment 225330

It reminds me of the cobalt crystal bottle I asked u if u had? Beautiful bottle.... I love these and have never seen anything like them. how old are they? I’m planning to go back to Virginia city and the ghost town, Bodie soon, again, but even there I’ve never seen these. And around here, that’s the real old stuff... mark twain spent some wild years there. Heck, black Bart used to rob stage coaches 3 miles from my house. People are always looking for all the gold hidden around here from the robbery’s back in the day. But still, have seen a lot of old stuff, but never bottles like those! I love the green Hutchinson’s, too....

Simply, a beautiful display. Great job with the lighting and choosing glass over plexi-glass.
As mentioned, please be careful with those corner pins.
Also, some really nice bottles!!!!!!!!!

Yes, amazing collection of cobalt bottles.
On the Crystal Soda, those are from the West Coast (S.F. area.)
Know A dealer/friend who has one that is sooooooo dark that no matter what light you might shine on it, you can't see throught the entire bottle.
Seen runs of these by the shade of cobalt.
There is an aqua version and its somewhat hard to find.
