Blackhawk Ginger Ale bottle, 7 3/4" tall, clear glass, straight taper neck with ring and looks like inside threading, two mold seams, marked BG Co at the base, possibly made by Belleville Glass Co. (Illinois 1882-1886). The Carse and Ohlweiler Bottling Company was formed by Henry Carse, John Elder and John Ohlweiler in 1873. They set up their business on the corner of Eleventh Street and Fifth Avenue in Rock Island, Illinois. The company produced Root Beer, Ginger Ale and other flavored sodas, which included about 11 flavors, was given the brand name "Blackhawk" after the native warrior and leader, Black Hawk, of the Sauk tribe of Illinois. The business operated for over fifty years. Excellent paper label, see photos. Do you collect soda bottles? Well we also have listed Coke, Cupid, Howdy, Twin Lights, C A Sparkling Beverage, Eddy of Brattleboro, Vermont and Gurnsey of Keene, New Hampshire bottles for sale. We acquired boxes of old bottles from the basement of an old country store. In storage for many years was a wide assortment of soda, beer, pharmacy, drugstore, and old empty liquor bottles. Some had labels on them, many labels had fallen off and were in the bottom of the box. We have cleaned the bottles and tried to affix labels to the right bottle. Surprisingly the labels are in very good condition, still colorful. It was a common practice on “return bottles” that they would be refilled for reuse and resold.
