Lot of three glass bottles (one champagne and two Webb's Soda torpedoes) from the RMS Rhone (1867). Champagne bottle: 621 grams, 11-1/4" tall and 2-1/2" in diameter; Webb soda bottle: 367 grams, 9-1/4"long; Webb soda bottle: 651 grams, 9-1/4" long. Three bottles from the RMS Rhone, a British mail steamer which sank in an 1867 hurricane off the coast of Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. Champagne bottle is a lovely green color with swirls of glass, an incredibly deep pontil at 4", and small chunk missing from the lip. The two soda glasses are completely intact and torpedo-shaped, one with just sediment inside but the other with small pool of seawater and sediment and labeled on outside WEBB'S DOUBLE SODA & OTHER WATERS TO HER MAJESTY ISLINGTON LONDON. Just as interesting as the bottles is the wreck itself, as it was featured in the 1977 movie "The Deep" based on a novel by Peter Benchley of "Jaws" fame and starring Nick Nolte and Jacqueline Bisset. With certificates.
