The England of the second half of the nineteenth century is the first global power. The economy is dynamic and sells its products on five continents. This economic locomotive needs technological innovations. This bottle is one of these inventions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The bottle is named Codd from an English engineer based in London. In 1872 Hiram Codd files a patent for a soft drink bottle of a new kind. The perfect seal is ensured by a glass marble and a rubber ring placed in the neck. The Codd bottle will become very popular in England, Australia and in some of the crown colonies, as Mauritius.

The Codd bottles are returnable and expensive to manufacture. But it is known that many children  and hunters broke them to retrieve the glass marbles. They will be permanently abandoned after the WW2.

Some countries such as India and Japan still use it.
