Hello. I am new here and I am hoping someone can tell me a little history about this bottle. My Dad gave it to me and he got it in a yard sale. I can’t seem to find one like it just searching the internet. It has a thin long neck and it’s kind of slightly bent. The letters and numbers on the bottom rest G-2909. And it says Canada Dry at the base of the neck. Any info would be greatly appreciated:)

Yeah I’m not really good at this but I tried looking for a similar one and don’t see anything. You’re right it does look like someone blew up a balloon. LOL

You probably will never see another like it. I am guessing someone's art project of some sort, where they heated it to expand, similar to those bottle they gave away at carnivals with the stretched necks.
Looks very fragile.
You may be right. That sounds like a definite possibility. I didn’t even know that was done. I’m learning so much! It’s funny because my Dad is a yard-saler. Me, not so much. But I do appreciate historic and antique things. I asked him to find me an old wine demijohn and this is what he gave me. Haha.

There are also a couple more markings I just noticed. A small indentation near the base. There are also some more numbers under the first set. I can really only make out a 7 and possibly a 3.

I agree on it being modified. Never saw one like that at any carnival. I have seen and have stretched bottles. Usually the kids put colored sand in them. That is some work though. I always wanted to do that to a hobbleskirt Coke bottle. I think it would look cool.

its still a unique item in the sense although not really sure what anyone would do with it
