    It Says Maine Bottling Company. Lewiston,Maine. It is 9 inches tall and 2 inches wide. It is blown glass and is full of air bubbles. I got it from my grandfather.This has been in his attic for over 60 years. It is crooked while standing up right. I couldn't find much about it.

      It appears to be of an early crown-top soda-pop shape. The tooled top should put it before 1920. The base style suggests before 1915, thus it is 100-115 years old.
      It looks to be in good shape. Maine Bottling Company seems to have been either a multi-town operation or, more likely, a generic name. I did not locate much in my fairly quick search, either.

      since this is already solved I like to point out I seen a bottle like this on ebay sell for around $300 nice item
    4. SpiritBear, 6 years ago

      Thats very cool. I had know idea it was worth that much. Thanks

      What a similar bottle sells for and what an identical bottle sells for are totally different things. So is what a bottle sells for, and the price people want to get for it. You can price it at what you want, but if in an antique store you see, "ebay price $__, our price $__" they're not likely looking at sold value.
      I do not think a crown top bottle would sell for that much unless it were a still-existent brand like Coca-Cola and very rare or from a ghost town.
