Creativity from the days before plastic.
Take a sojourn into the days before plastic. Manufacturers of soda water appeared in Argentina in the early 1900’s and chose engraved colored glass for their product. They picked up the bottles from homes and restaurants daily and refilled them, just like a milkman would. These bottles are originals from pre-1940’s Argentina; the dates (1914-1935) are stamped on the metal neck of each bottle. Display them as they are or remove the tops and add a spray of flowers to use them as a vase.
One bottle included per order. Vintage bottles are decorative and should not be used for food storage.

Meet the Maker
THE SELTZER SHOP was created by Russell Johnson Imports in 1997 after a visit to the Sunday Flea Market in San Telmo, one of Buenos Aires' historic neighborhoods. There Russell Johnson came across a family selling a collection of beautiful vintage seltzer bottles from the 1930s. Russell not only bought as many as he could carry, he also bonded with the family and promised to keep in touch. Back in the States, Russell Johnson showed the bottles to a few of his interior design colleagues, and from there, the shop was born.View Full Profile
