Vintage Pewter Pewter

Can you reuse a vintage seltzer bottle?

Are the caps on those antique and vintage seltzer bottles sealed permanently on? I'm considering making my own soda with a large co2 cylinder since I read about it on Yahoo Answers. If the caps are removable on the old glass seltzer bottles, could you make seltzer water in a Plastic soda bottle and then funnel it into the old seltzer bottle? Has anyone done this?
Thanks for the info. I don't have a seltzer bottle yet. Online (ebay) most don't say what year they're from. A number say they're MADE IN CZECHOSLOVAKIA. Does that say anything about the age and/or safety?

I wouldn't suggest it without you telling us what vintage the bottle is. These can range from the late 1800s to the 1960s. The problem is the really old ones used lead and lead pewters in the mechanics and seals.

Here's what I would suggest:

1. Date your bottle, don't use any made before the 1940s (before WWII). If you've got a safe usable one, then, yes, the top will come off and the CO2 cartridges will work if you have the screw on cartridge holder. If the top doesn't come off, it is probably the kind you don't want. It would have added carbolic acid to water, not CO2 to water, and would not have come apart.
2. Look for the vintage type seltzer trigger that used to clip onto a glass bottled seltzer (i.e. 1 qt. soda pop bottle that came with seltzer in it), again aim for 1940s or newer trigger, then find a swank vintage glass seltzer pop bottle and decant the plastic liter into it. There are some awesome vintage seltzer pop bottles with cocktail graphics if you search for them.
3. Buy a new seltzer top that screws onto a plastic liter of seltzer. These are made of plastic, but I have seen some well made respectable ones.
4. Buy one of the new repro seltzer bottles that use the CO2 cartridges.

Good luck.
