    Houston Bottling Works bottle that had a Stewart's Seal

    Hi I found this bottle in the muck on the bank of Buffalo bayou in Houston. I can't find anything on Houston Bottling Works but I did find information on Stewart's patent for his stopper (1895 -1896). I would really be interested in the history if anyone knows anything.

    Nice bottle! I'll second that advice to go look for more! Here's a mention of the Houston Bottling Works that says it was established in 1877:

By 1900 he is widowed and living in Port Arthur Texas working as a cook, here are his two documented hutchinson bottles. 1894 is the last year he is listed as a soda bottler in the Houston directories...

    Applied top pony from the sodasandbeeers.com website, there is also a round bottom bottle from him for Belfast Ginger Ale, no pic available. Your bottle may be an "only known" variant at this time...

    Thank you so much Jim! Would you happen to know where the bottling company was located? I have looked and looked plus I went through the Sanborn maps of Houston from the beginning and I didn't see Houston Bottling Works.
