I have been having trouble researching this bottle and hope someone here can help me. Here is the pertinent information:
It is a honey or medium amber bottle measuring 9 5/8. It has a crown top. It is BIM (seams go to just under rim). It has no closure. Smooth base with the #'s 489 embossed on bottom. No letters or symbols on bottom, just 489. This is what the embossing on front of bottle says:
RIEGER BOTTLING WKS
BINGHAMTON . N.Y.
It has "good bubbles". Excellent condition so I don't think it was ever buried underground.
I can't even locate the existence of this company. I will try the historical society. I hope someone can give me some more info. Thank you so much in advance for any information that any of you can help me with.
