    Real or Repro?

    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.

    Real or Repro?

    Hello all, found this little guy in the goodwill today - looks similar to the small hand flasks of the mid 1800's. Usually finds like this are too good to be true. Any thoughts are appreciated!

    Hand blown bottle / jug from goodwill -

    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!

    Old Gin bottle in near mint condition found at Goodwill Austin

    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?

    Hand blown bottle / jug from goodwill -

    Any thoughts on age or origin? Nice pontil scar, uneven lip with lots of bubbles. Not sure it's age but I don't think its a China newbie. Very cute and vibrant green.

    Thrift store Floats - are they old?

    thanks everyone - sitting in stagnant water certainly would make sense. I didn't pay too much and they are a nice color - will look good in the back yard. - Thanks for all of the replies -

    Thrift store Floats - are they old?

    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...

    Old Gin bottle in near mint condition found at Goodwill Austin

    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.

    Old Gin bottle in near mint condition found at Goodwill Austin

    Found this beauty at a goodwill in Austin Tx the other day. Nice little pig nose for next to nothing. Don't think it has ever been buried. Guesses as to its age?
