Need Help Determining Value of Rare Hutchinson Bottle NY1369
We have a Hutchinson bottle that according to Hutchbook, has a rarity classification of RARE, with less than 10 known examples. The Hutchbook bottle identification number is NY1369. The bottle is from the ISAIAH BUNN RIVERSIDE BOTTLING WORKS of Warwick, New York. circa 1890. I believe that the rarity is based on that the bottle manufacturer made a spelling error, using RIVER SIDE rather than Riverside.
The heel is marked F.B.Co. for the Findlay Bottling Company. The Bottle Research Group Logo Table dates the mark between 1888 - 1893. Other markings are as follows:
Front panel embossed wording centered over six lines:
ISAIAH BUNN / REGISTERED / RIVER SIDE / BOTTLING / WORKS / WARWICK, N.Y.
Base is embossed with a star and no markings on the back panel.
The height of the bottle is approximately 6 ⅝" and the base is 2 ⅜" across. The color is a very light aqua--almost just a tinge of aqua. Seams from the base to the shoulder run on both sides. It is in fantastic condition with chips or cracks but does have a scratches from use.
I have researched the bottle as far as I can--even digging through old Warwick newspapers from 1890 - 1980 to find out more about Isaiah Bunn and the business he founded in 1890. (Bottled soda water, summer drinks and lager, as well as selling ice).
With all that said, now is time to determine the value.
I would appreciate group members' thoughts and any information you could provide.
Thanks in advance.
