Another new addition to my collection of St. Louis soda's. Fresh out of the tumbler so I have before and after pictures once again.
John O'Brien was a soda manufacturer from 1865 to 1906. I recently purchased about a dozen or so St. Louis blobs that were all excavated by the same person. So I am able to date this bottle to the 1873 - 1876 timeframe, I know this by having researched the Wetter & Mehrkens bottle. He came out pretty good but one slight fracture going into the E, couldn't have been on the other side. Oh Well! This is the only bottle I have that has AGT under the name. I believe this stands for Agent. No glass makers mark on this one.

Buying that many bottles for your collection that need tumbled you were smart to buy your own equipment to do it. That bottle came out looking good also.
