In early 1900, in Chile there were a variety of mineral water factories, drinks and beers that have now disappeared. The brand Jahuel (mineral water) is one of the few that is still on the market. The photo shows a variety of bottles used during these 100 years.

    Yuko, we have talked before. Great collection of bottles. Ever found any old Coke bottles way down there? Ran into a strange situation today. Friend leaving & carrying out some old Coke bottles for me to sell on Ebay. One commemorative was un-opened so he couldn't take it on the plane! What do we do? Open it, empty & destroy the value? The "Americans" brought the problem on & we all have to suffer for it.

    Estimate blunderbuss2 : fortunately I collect the bottles are only those that have been found in the old dumps of former saltpeter works that existed in northern Chile between 1840 and 1940. All these bottles are without content.
    Relating to bottles of Coca Cola, are very difficult to find because when he started drinking of Coca Cola to be known, about 1920, and many had closed Salitreras the great crisis of nitrate.
    What I said to her collection of Coca Cola is very unfortunate and apparently has no solution for the new restrictions that exist in commercial flights. greetings Yuko
