Oscar Altpeter Blob Soda Bottle Baraboo Wisconsin WI qt
- Source: eBay
Up for auction is this antique aqua quart sized blob soda from Oscar Altpeter in Baraboo, Wisconsin. The bottle stands approximately 10 3/4" tall. It is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. It has several primitive bubbles in the glass that date this old bottle, from the late 1800's. The heel of the bottle indicates "I. G. CO. 79". I believe this stands for the Illinois Glass Company in Alton, Ill. The "79" could refer to 1879, as the Illinois Glass Company was in existance from 1873 to 1929.The one photo makes the bottle seem more squatty than it actually is, due to my new photo software. A true antique bottle! Buyer pays shipping as calculated below and insurance is optional. Accept PayPal. Happy Bidding and Good Luck!!
