    TOC20 Scotch Whiskey Bottle. 3 pc. mold

    Your five images are consistently light amber. Individual computers (and cameras, I suppose) may vary in rendering colors, but I would expect to see some variance between images as the light angles and glass thickness change. I checked on my other computer to look for local color variance --...

    Trying out the new poll feature! Northern sodas or southern sodas?

    Huh. 133 views, but only 9 votes. "No Preference" seems to be leading the poll. :)

    TOC20 Scotch Whiskey Bottle. 3 pc. mold

    What a nice window bottle in light amber. I'd have said this is a TOC20 scotch whiskey bottle, if I had found it.

    Texting?? What need of texting to post images here? You're not one of those cowboys who are all hat and no cows, are you? An extensive/expensive bottle collection should be photographed for insurance purposes, at a minimum.

    Greetings, Frank. It's usually no fun having an extensive bottle collection unless you can show it (or some of it) to other collectors. How about some images of your demijohns . . . show me yours and I'll show you mine.

    Civil War Bottle

    Like Jim G, I am uncertain of the origin of the bottle. It is not distinctively British, in my estimation. I don't like the "skirt" of the lip finish for British. I would like to see the color of the glass, but I am leaning toward American-made.

    Civil War Bottle

    I think it looks right for the CW Era.

    Old Bottle vs Art Piece?

    The form itself dates to 18th Century Europe; but, I think you're right -- this Central European spirits flask (schnapenflasche) is probably much younger. See ANTIQUE GLASS BOTTLES by Willy Van den Bossche, pp. 278-279. If you don't have this book, I have one to sell you. It's still in the...

    Did I just find what I think I found......... At the Goodwill?

    "Re-fired pontil" is a collector myth. Thought exercise: When in the bottle-making process -- the steps in producing the bottle, from gather to annealing -- could a pontil scar be re-fired??

    Trying to identify this bottle

    The bird appears to have a halo around its head. That would make it "The Dove of Peace" or the "Holy Ghost" -- the Christian god, that is. What happened in the history of Christianity in 1319? On the other hand, the bird could be a poor representation of a martial eagle. What happened of...

    Found at same Antique store today, Wine Bottle?

    I think I remember these being American whiskey bottles, collectible in distinctive colors.

    Trying to identify this bottle

    It's a bocksbeutel bottle, probably European in origin. I don't see any reference to A. D. 1319 in the "angel number" web-site. Within the European Union, the Bocksbeutel enjoys the status of a protected bottle shape.[1] The regulations describe the Bocksbeutel as a short-necked glass bottle...
