Addedum our consignor said bottle is from 1910

From a bottling works in Staten Island owned by George Ruth, this 9" tall bottle is embossed “Staten Island Bottling Company, Baltimore MD, George Ruth's Prop’r Trade Mark Registered.” In the center is an embossed “GR” crest. Below this is embossed “This Bottle Not To Be Sold,” hence the rarity. George Ruth was, of course, the saloon keeper who was the great Babe Ruth’s father. Babe Ruth purchased his father the Ruth's Café in 1915 his first season with the Red Sox. Bottle has an aged look to it from the period that could be cleaned, but we have elected to leave it with it's ages patina.
