"A sojourn into the days before plastic. Manufacturers of soda water appeared in Argentina in the early 1900s and chose engraved colored glass for their product. They picked up the bottles from homes and restaurants daily and refilled them. Originals from pre-1940s Argentina, dates (1914-1940) are stamped on the metal neck of most bottles. Display as is or remove the top and add a spray of flowers." A native of Cody, WY, Russell Johnson found his true calling on a trip to Buenos Aires while visiting one of the most inspiring flea markets he’d ever encountered. The multilingual maverick instantly knew what he had to do: In 1997 he launched Russell Johnson Imports with an eclectic line of vintage objects that were an instant hit among designers and the media alike. In this specially curated sale Russell shares an amazing collection of authentic architectural elements, antique furniture, accessories, and art from India and other parts of the world.
