Vintage Seltzer Bottles

August 29, 2011

I am always looking for decorative objects to give a space interest, and a sense of history. Vintage seltzer bottles speak to me of a slower time. They have a decorative quality that stands the test of time. The bottles work great mixed into a bookcase filled with art, books and objects. I love them on a bar, giving it a retro feel. Many times the bottles are not functioning, but what I am going for here is form, not function. You can have them reconditioned, which is fantastic, but not necessary. For many years I have been finding and selling these cool metal encased seltzer bottles from Argentina that were made in the 1930’s. There is just something about the look and feel that I really dig. They look great singly or grouped.
