THIS TYPE OF SODA GLASS STOPPER WAS INVENTED BY JOHN MATTHEWS, OF NEW YORK CITY, AND PATENTED ON OCTOBER 11TH, 1864. SOME BOTTLERS USED STOPPERS MADE FROM OTHER MATERIAL. SOME OF THESE GLASS STOPPERS ARE EMBOSSED WITH THE PATENT DATES OF AUGUST 26, 1862 / OCTOBER 11, 1864. AND, I HAVE ONE THAT HAS AN EXTRA PATENT DATE OF APRIL 16, 1873. SHOWS THIS PARTICULAR STYLE OF BOTTLE WAS AROUND FOR A FEW YEARS, ANYWAY.
