    John Bernard Seeger had a soda business at 1510 Clark Avenue in St. Louis, Missouri that ran from 1870 to about 1893.
    The bottles in the pictures are quite different and I don't know which one is older. I believe the first pic is a hutch? and the second a blob top? There are no marks on the bottle that show the glass manufacturer. I have heard of Hutchinson blobs, blobs, hutches etc., but never understood the difference.
    I mainly collected the more modern era bottles (circa 1920's to 1960's)but in the past 5 or so years have started collecting the early sodas as shown.
    Any information would be greatly appreciated!

      Yes I like the earlier soda's also but they come at a higher price usually.

      Difference is the stopper. The first looks more like a Gravitating Stopper, 1860s-1890s way to seal bottles. The second would have had some sort of wire swing bail.
      They're both applied tops, so they date before 1890. The South was slower to move over to tooled tops than the North, from my experience. Further dating would be difficult to do just by the tops.
