Blown In Mold : Applied Blob Top : Iron Pontil : Bluish Green. This listing is for an exceptional example of the r.Are George Eagle New York soda bottle, with numerous vertical ribs covering much of the body of this attractive squat soda bottle. The vertical ribs twist to the left from the bottom as they go up, except for an angled smooth surface embossed "GEO EAGLE". The ribs terminate below the shoulder, where there are three horizontal ribs that go around the bottle. The bottle is bluish green and has a crudely applied blob top with some extra glass coming out on to the neck.
Bottle has never been in the ground, never been cleaned or tumbled and retains minimal wear on the body, but plenty of expected base wear. This bottle has been only in our collection since it was found in the dark recesses an antiques shop in Long Island in the 1990s. Being a returnable bottle, it is remarkably good shape, but for the sake of accuracy, there are two tiny dings in two of the ribs and a couple case scratch marks on two more, which look like rough spots.
The excess glass coming from under the blob top has a 2 mm rough spot which looks like a tiny ding. There is a miniscule burst bubble near the base from manufacture.
The bottle is otherwise a fantastic example, with a good, deep mold impression and rich bluish green hue. The glass surface is glossy and the interior is clean. Bottle has never been cleaned or tumbled, simply because it appears to have never been in the ground. We are listing some of the bottles from our permanent collection and this soda is our top-shelf example of an early American soda bottle.
