A sojourn into the days before plastic. Manufacturers of soda water appeared in Argentina in the early 1900âs and chose engraved colored glass for their product. They picked up the bottles from homes and restaurants daily and refilled them. Originals from pre-1940âs Argentina, the dates (1914-1935) are stamped on the metal neck of each bottle. Display them as they are or remove the tops and add a spray of flowers.
