"Codd neck" soda bottle marked La Oriental. 640 grams; 9" tall. Did you ever wonder why soda is sometimes called "pop"? The answer comes from original bottles like this one, in which a glass marble at top had to be pushed down into the crimped neck, making a "pop" sound, to start drinking from the bottle. This specimen is completely intact, with lots of tiny bubbles in the clear green glass, embossed in front with the brand of the soda, La Oriental, and at the bottom of the back with THE NIAGARA BOTTLE / BARNETT & FOSTER / MAKERS / LONDON. N. Pedigreed to the Marty Meylach collection, with photo-certificate. From: Alicia, sunk in 1905 in the Florida Keys
