View Full Version : Whiskey and Gin

On behalf of a friend, I wonder if anyone here could help with identifying (and maybe giving some idea of the value) this gin bottle and whiskey jug. Any help would be appreciated. I have bigger pictures if needed.

The case gin, if pontilled (it appears to be so) is worth $100-150 in perfect condition. Damage, however minor, can really hurt the value.

Hi Standog and welcome to the forum !
I agree with Chris .....a perfect example will fetch a 100.00 + if it's in the 10" - 11" tall range.
But a Case gin like yours in the 15" + tall range can fetch upwards to a 1000.00 +
How tall is yours you have pictured ?
And the Red & Green transfer Cruiskeen Lawn Jug seem to be the most desirable .... and the most common is the Black transfer. It seems if I recall correctly they will bring in the 40.00 - 75.00 range . But , don't quote me on that ! Maybe some of the other members have a better idea of the stonewares value .
Hope this helps !

Hi Standog, If you could please tell me the size of this case gin, Height, width of shoulders and base. And to see a photo of the base to see if this beauty is a dual or singly ponitled. And to determine if it was blown into a wood or clay mold. These all have factors determining age and the value. And if there is any cracks, chips, dings or staining inside the bottle. I should be able to give you an approximate value of this bottle for your friend. I have been buying trading and selling these case gins for over 45 years. And usualy am pretty close on there vale. Thank You Dwight

Not sure but the gin appears to be from around 1800- 1820 but Dwight will certainly be able to give a better idea if you can get a base shot. The red print Whisky is quite a good one as mentioned and would normally go for around $200- $250
