Vintage Cuban bottle from Camaguey, Cuba.

A real antique bottle. A glass marble ball in the neck was pushed up against a rubber gasket in the lip to seal the bottle. The pressure of the carbonated beverage inside kept the glass ball in place. Theses bottles had to be filled upside down in order for the glass ball to properly seat.

The indentations in the neck kept the marble from clogging when the contents were poured out. The insert in the image shows the top part of a similar bottle that was never used, the difference with our bottle is that the glass ball inside our bottle is the same color as the bottle therefore the glass ball can not be seen clearly in the image in our site.

This bottle is in excellent condition, the letterings are embossed in the same kind of thick glass and it looks that it was made last week not in XIX century. Glass is transparent, and the ball inside can be seen very clearly. Minimal signs (clearly seen in the photo) of damage in transit, no big nicks, no cracks at all.

Botella cubana. Botella de La Moderna, Camaguey, Cuba. En gruesas letras a relieve se lee: FABRICA DE GASEOSAS de PIJUAN HERMANO Ca.

Esta botella es del siglo XIX, de cristal grueso y resistente, con el muy especial cierre patentado en 1874, una bola de cristal que esta dentro de la botella permanentemente y que impide que el liquido se salga.

La parte de abajo de la imagen muestra el cuello de una bottella exacta a la que que ofrecemos pero que nunca fue usada, la diferencia es que en nuestra botella la bola de cristal es del mismo color de la botella y por tanto no se ve en la imagen. En muy buenas condiciones aunque con las muestras de roces con otras botellas durante los miles de viajes que debe de haber hecho de la fabrica al consumidor.
