Spring & Mineral Water Gallery
One of the earliest bottle styles identified with mineral water was the “Saratoga” style. As with most early bottle styles, these have squatty bodies, i.e., relatively large diameter proportional to the body height. This style also has a relatively short neck and finish, which in combination are usually less than half the height of the body on the pint bottles and somewhat less than the body height on the quarts. This style was also used around the country by other mineral water purveyors, including a few on the West Coast, most likely to recreate the “cachet” in their offerings of the famous Saratoga Springs, N.Y. products.
