This came from my father's collection of quality antique bottle. Mineral water was discovered in Colfax, Iowa in 1875 and the town became famous from it with people traveling from all over to enjoy the benefits. Elaborate sanitoriums and hotels were built in this very small town. The water boom lasted about 75 years.

This bottle is in excellent condition and measures. 11 1/2" tall.
