Have an old bottle? Want to know what it is worth? Then the Standard Old Bottle Price Guide is a good place to look.This bottle guide clearly describes the words, letters and numbers embossed on a bottle or the bottle label making identification easy. An example is "Abbott's Bitters: on base: C.W. Abbot & Co., Baltimore on shoulder; machine made; 8"; amber. $30-40."The Standard Old Bottle Price Guide covers most bottles, including those early bitter bottles that began surfacing when England's George II was on the throne (1727-1760). At the height of the patent medicine phase, drugstores in the United States sold about 365 million bottles of elixirs known as "cures" in a variety of bottles. Most are collectible today.Though the author died while completing the manuscript for this book, it adequately covers these sought-after glass bottles: poison, soda,, mineral water, gin, ink, and perfume. The book even devotes a few pages to fruit jars.This guide is a good addition to any bottle collector's library
Very helpful. It lists descriptions and prices for a lot of the old bottles we had. Broken down into catagories so you don't have to spend a lot of time looking. Well worth the price.
good basic bottle history.
