JSF9. "GEO. UPP JR. / YORK, PA. - MINERAL / WATER", midnight blue, cylindrical, iron pontil scar, 7 5/8"H x 2 5/8"D, applied blob-style collar, about mint (a few clouds of light interior haze and some light exterior wear). American, 1855-1865, rare.

As with the "large lettering" Upp soda that we have posted, this hard-to-find York, PA bottle is also an attic quality piece that has never been cleaned or altered. The bottle is blown in an unusual shade of "midnight blue" that is just different enough from straight "cobalt blue" for one to take notice. The embossed lettering is wonderfully bold and though the bottle is not technically "perfect," it is awfully close and certainly one of the finest known examples of this rare York, PA iron pontiled soda.
