    Hey Bill, They are really common and sell for about $10 on a good day but they go good in a bitters collection. Most bitter were in odd or medicine shaped bottles. It's nice to have a few whiskey style bottles in there.

    ollarBill:

    Hey Bill, Warren has that one right on the money...(what's new right?) I have seen them as much as $20.00 for the larger one. Hope that helps...

    Caretaker...

    Hey Steve, I have one of the larger ones. Found it up at Moosehead Lake Had a nice color to it. It's in a box around here somewhere, so when I dig it out, I'll contact you and send it your way.

    Le' bo'team. Odd bottom and the pic don't do it justice. You could take the hide off you finger tip on the bottom of this thing. It's like emery paper. Thought it was just an unusually deep post mold at first til I stuck my finger in there like a dope.

    They were blown into a mold with the engraving in the bottom just like molds with the engraving in the side and then a pontil was carefully and some times not so carefully in the center. Also notice the lettering on the bottom of my bottle is kind of thick and run out. Thats from refiring.

    That looks like a marking from the illionois glass company on the bottom of your bottle..............correct me if im wrong. They started in the late 1870's, I believe.

    Anyone want to dig in illinois?

    I have a 9" green bottle which is machine made JCB SIEGERT & SON Dr embosed around shoulder ANGOTURA BITTERS embosed on bottom.. Part of label around neck and body of bottle. Looks like about three seals one on top of other on neck (but hard to read) One does say Liquor bottle and another Port of Spain.
    Label on side of bottle does have foreign language mixed with English.. Partial, ANGOSTURA- WUPPER (Missing) N.J.Says made from bark and it seems long time ago read he was making this somewhere in South America and he was also trying to beat the 1906 act.

    Spain and South American made. That could explain why some bottles were blown and pontiled and others were blm or machine made. Great info David.
