From my research William Wilke was Manufacturing mainly Mineral Water & Soda in Cincinnati Ohio in 1860. It does resemble a Mineral Water Bottle. LEON.

As for Value, gotta be a minimum of $500 easily, at least. Maybe $1,000 or $1,500 or more depending on rarity. Just my opinion, others may vary.

Wow that's a beauty! I'm not familiar with the specific bottler but that's an unusual level of decoration for that era. Excellent bottle!

Applied blob, iron-pontil, mineral water/soda, likely pre-civil war era, from a 12 panel mold, embossed lettering, shiny, clear, and undamaged. It checks all the boxes in terms of value. What a beauty!

This is the exact bottle recently listed on ebay. Surprisingly enough, even at $50, it closed with no bids. Early, beautiful soda that you'd think would be worth that.
