Cohn Bros Codd-neck Bottle
This Cohn Brothers Codd-neck bottle used a marble as a stopper. Children would smash the bottles to retrieve the marble for their games.
The Codd-neck bottle was designed for carbonated drinks in 1872 by Hiram Codd, a British soft-drink maker. The bottles were filled upside down as the pressure of the gas pushed the marble against the washer, sealing in the carbonation. Codd bottles were also used for carbonated alcoholic beverages, such as beer.
