This is the great Tombstone blob (applied top) from the Steve Elliott Collection, the private museum in Tombstone, Arizona. It has been professionally restored by Lou Lambert. Light aqua, loads of "whittle", a bit of case wear along the base edges, a beauty! An extremely rare soda, the Union Soda works bottles are few and far between. we've been lucky enough to sell thee different specimens over the years, but there may be less than ten known. These were first used at a time when the Earp brothers were the law enforcement in Tombstone, including the famous gun fight at the OK Corral. Did one of the Earp's drink out of this bottle? was it sold at Max Oberfelder's saloon? (see his bottle in the Eureka, Nevada section of my book with whiskey bottles, the Nevada History Through Glass, vol 1.) PLEASE ASK CONDITION QUESTIONS BEFORE BIDDING. ALL BOTTLE SALES FINAL.
