I sent pics to Bill Lindsey at the historic bottle site and he indicates it is real but Norwegian or Scandinavian made - Lion holding an axe is the country symbol of Norway. he says it dates from the 1840's to 1880's.
I didn't think so either - too shiny, its a nice bobble and will sell in the store - 99% of the time the thrifts don't yield much but when I see a hand made item for 2 bucks it's worth a shot. I'll throw $10 on it and somebody will put it in their window. Thanks for the input!
Thanks for the input - I don't know much at all about Case gin bottles
- I do know that the bottle must have sat on someone's shelf for awhile looking at the wear marks on the bottom. When did the Czech folks start doing repos?
Hello all - I am a collector of bottles mostly-(Owl Drug, Poisons, early shot glasses, etc) I like all old glass and can't pass up a nice piece of glass at the thrifts- I found 5 of these cobalt 6" diameter net floats in Eugene OR today. I know very little about this area of glass. I can tell...
Thanks! yeah I'm always in Salvation Army, Goodwill and many other thrifts and get lucky quite frequently. I am fortunate that my job takes me to these stores in a variety of cities around the country. Crazy that it survived this long in that condition and made it on to the shelves intact.
