Hi all,

I was digging around in the shed yesterday and came across som old blob tops that I had pretty much forgotten about. I am considering throwing a few on craigslist and was wondering what would be a fair price to ask if I decide to sell.

This example is an amber blob from JM Shaffer, 1109 Carson St., Pittsburg (no h) PA. It still has the wire bail and stopper. 11 1/2" tall. I have a few other bottlers, but they are clear.

The address on the bottle is currently the site of a pub in the burgh. Perhaps they may be interested...?

Thanks for looking,

hj

My reckoning is like this: an amber blob should cost twice as much as it's clear or aqua twin. $15 to 20 if it's in good shape and not too rare... I would bring it right to that pub and see if they'll give you 50 for it, since it has their address on it!!
