I have researched a lot of karl hutter bottles with diff. embossing. This one says oriental bottling co., norwalk ct., bottle not to be sold and karl hutter xxxny , new york on the bottom. Can't find the bottling company anywhere on the net. Lightning stopper is engraved june 5 1877. and the number 3. Help tracking it down and value much appreciated.

It’s not an uncommon bottle in my experience. I also think they had bottles in other towns in CT too. I’ve seen more than a few. I’ll start paying attention to town names.

I actually just found my first Karl Hutter embossed blob on a slug plate. Apparently there are a few variations - one has an embossed bottle

Thanks so much for the input. I was wondering too about the title Oriental Bottling Co., kind of unusual. Must have been very small of short term. Any clue re: the value of this item?

To be honest - unless someone really needs it - I struggle to get more than 15 bucks for CT blobs without pictures or color

Thanks,
I did post pictures and the color is aqua. The neck is whittled and has several bubbles in the glass. Still interested in knowing something about the bottling co. Oriental.

I'd assume that this was a short lived company. As far as price, I think you might have luck with around $30 if you were to sell to a collector from that area.

Thanks so much. Self lived for sure, can't find info. anywhere. A good find for me though, didn't have one with the lightning stopper attached.
