3-In-One Oil became a household word in the early 1900s and was sold in green cork top bottles between 1905 and 1910. In 1910 the bottles were changed to screw caps. This sample bottle still contains its original 3-In-One oil.

Hutchinson Bottles Hutchinson Bottles
In the 1800s bottles appeared using Hutchinson's Patented Spring Stoppers. They became known as "Hutchinson" or "Hutch" bottles. These were widely used for carbonated beverages. When you wanted the bottle opened you would press down on the wire sticking out of the top and the stopper would break the seal with a "Pop". Hence the name "Soda Pop". Pictured are three local Hutchinson bottles I've found with their original stoppers from Weedsport, Auburn, and Port Byron N.Y..
