My dear friend from the Lower East Side, who goes by the lens name “Yenta Laureate” is a huge fan of those ancient seltzer bottles. Her home is decorated with a cheerful row of them, a kind of museum for carbonated memories.
As the brand SodaWater is increasing in popularity, threatening the give Coke and Pepsi a bit of a run for their money—well, maybe more like a walk for their money—the old seltzer bottles, which are vanishing from the world at an alarming rate (possibly because people are using them to decorate their living rooms), represent an organic, intuitive approach to soda pop.
But forget all that environmental and just enjoy the beautiful glass bottle and the elaborate spigot.
