Bottle, Thomson's soda waterAbout this object
Bottle; a green glass Thomson's soda bottle with a glass marble in the neck.This kind of bottle was invented specifically for carbonated drinks. It was designed to enclose a marble and rubber washer in the neck; the bottles were filled upside down and the pressure of the gas in the bottle forced the marble against the washer, sealing in the carbonation. The neck was pinched, to provide a chamber into which the marble was pushed to open the bottle.Maker

Hi, I have one of these bottles, given to me by my grandfather, the seal broke and it lost its contents when we shifted a couple of years ago. Can you give me an estimate of the value of the bottle. Thanks
