These bottles are 5 inches high. Embossed on the base is DAR (Daughters of American Revolution)and 1979. What I need to know is: Were they sold by The Franklin Mint? If not, where did they come from? and, What color names did they give each one. Thanks for any help. Robin

Sorry, I can't help. Maybe commisioned by Wheaton.
It you come up empty here you cold contact the National DAR. http://www.dar.org/omni/contact.cfm

They may not help help much if it was commisioned by a the local chapters though.

Robin, welcome to the forum.

This is what I have on the FM bottles I've paraphrased some of it.: Set of 13 bottles to honor the contributions made by women to the war of Independence. The bottles symbolize the 13 original states.[/align]Four different shapes in ruby red, blue, amber, nut brown, evergreen, and heather. On the back is a starburst with 13 stars.
