Codd, Hiram

fl. 1850–1900 London, England
English inventor of a mineral-water bottle stopper.
Hiram Codd of Camberwell patented the celebrated Codd mineral-water bottle in 1875. The bottle had a glass marble stopper that was kept pressed against a rubber ring in the neck of the bottle by the internal pressure of the mineral water. Pressure was released by forcing the stopper down. It was most popular in Britain during the period 1890 to 1914, but it was still in use in the 1930s and remained in use in the Far East into the 1990s.
