Antique Coca-Cola Bottle

Al and I found this antique Coca-Cola bottle on a scuba dive many years ago, probably Lake Monona.  It was manufactured by Frank Statz & Co., approximately 1905-1915.

The words “Coca-cola” are embossed on the glass.

You never know what is buried in the muck at the bottom of your local lake.

  1. found the exact type bottle about 50 yrs ago in the attic of Madison General Hospital (west wing, which I think was the original hospital). It had a cork in it. I removed the cork, and you could still smell whiskey. I figure it was discarded by a workman building the hospital.
