Can anyone tell me about this bottle? The writing on it says Sullivan bottling works, Delphi Indiana

  • I learned that J N Sullivan was an agent for Indianapolis Brewing Company and wholesaled their brew to all of the Delphi Saloons.
  • The bottle is called a Hutch soda in collector circles - the shape of these bottles are largely similar. Hutch is short for Hutchinson, the man who invented the stopper.

    The website hutchsoda.com has nearly 20,000 different bottles listed, but not yours. That does not mean it is rare, it is simply that there were a lot of local bottlers at one time.

    Your bottle is fairly rough which really hurts its collector value.
