Union Soda Works. Medium aqua, some whittle, no Pontil. Lip damage in the back. Clean and sparkling. Applied top. Union Soda Works got its start in Tombstone, Arizona in 1881 under the proprietorship of Valentine Mandt, according to Michael R. Miller in "A Collector's Guide to Arizona Bottles & Stoneware". He only manufactured soda for one year in the 1880s, hence the incredible rarity of this bottle. It is the only blob soda from Arizona. This illustrates how difficult it was for many of the mining camps throughout the American West to use embossed bottles as an advertising product. The remote locations added great difficulty in receiving goods from Western (or Eastern) bottle manufacturers. There are probably less than 10 union Soda Works bottles known today. Quite a stir took place about a decade ago when 3 specimens were dug, one In a greenish hue. These bottles have long been prized by collectors because they came out at a time when the Earps fought the Clantons at the OK corral. Date: City: Tombstone State: Arizona HWAC# 30440
