My Blob-top Bottle Collection

The blob-top bottles pictured below date back to 1900 and before.  To learn more about these old bottles in general, click here.  Many had stoppers made of lead that pushed into the bottle and remained inside while you drank your beverage.  These were called Hutchinson bottles.  Click here to learn more about Hutchinson Bottles.  Another less common type of stopper was the Coddball stopper.  It used a marble as a stopper.  After one broke the seal and pushed the marble down into the bottle, one was only able to drink from one side (the side that held the loose marble in place).  Click here to learn more about Codd bottles.
