Carbon Canyon Historical Artifact #12

Here is yet another great artifact from the La Vida Mineral Springs. This seltzer bottle, which has a chrome head and a siphon on it, is in very good condition and has the original painted-on red lettering (see the above photos, which you can click on to enlarge.) In addition, there is lettering embossed onto the bottom portion of the bottle, though these don't come out very well in photos. I'm guessing that the bottles date from the 1940s or 1950s and I can't be sure that the head or siphon is original. The bottle is item 2009.2.1.1 from the Carbon Canyon Collection.
