    This is a counterfeit of the famous Huyandi Janos mineral water bottles, from Hungary. The base says "Keseru viz forras kocs" which I translated to Bitter Water source Quercus. Quercus means Oak in Latin. I'm not an expert on this whatsoever, so any help would be appreciated. It was found in Lewisburg West Virginia, in the mountainous Greenbriar county. Who knows what this was doing there.

    My wife and I visited Lewisburg last May. Her parents grew up in Renick, just north of Lewisburg. Beautiful area, WV is a well kept secret. Wish I could answer your question.

    I had a counterfeit plastic water bottle the other day I think.

    Was thinner plastic than usual.

    I don't mind if they counterfeit Rum bottles... as long as it lowers the price and is still real Rum.

    :P

    Just one of several people using similar looking bottles trying to cash in on the success of Janos...

    I had a choice between the real deal Huyandi bottle, and this one. I didn't know anything about either, and bought this one by dumb luck.

    I wouldn't go so far as to say counterfeit, more like generic or wannabe look alike knockoff. Still from the same era and chances are they are less common than the well known saxolennor bitterquelles, which is probably one of the most common antique bottles you come across.

    I called it a counterfeit, because I saw the term used in some 1800s ad somewhere for a soda, and thought it was funny.

    They may be common, but it's weird for them to end up in West Virginia.
