Old Moxie bottle??

klseiverdApril 14, 2012

Bought it today at a yard sale for $1. VERY heavy... weighs 1.75 lbs. Bought it cuz in nice shape (tiny chip on bottom edge) and blue/green glass will add to my collection (old Mason jars). There are bubbles in the glass. On bottom, it has raised...WT CO with a 4 underneath.

Any input?

What kind of label? What size? There were a lot of Moxie bottles.....and cans!! For $1 and at 1.75 pounds I would think it may be a "decorator item".

Bottle is straight-sided, about 3" in diameter, and a little over 10" tall. Tho not an "expert", I'm comfortable saying it's OLD for real and not just made to look old. On 2 sides of the "shoulder" (just below the start of the neck)... raised letters "MOXIE", in a slight curve. On body of bottle againi "MOXIE" in a straight line... on one side (in smaller raised letters) something about patent.

It was made originally in Maine, them Lowell, Mass. And finally in New Hampshire.
Web sources say it's been sold to a Japanese firm.
