    Wanted: Large Grapette

    I just happen to have that one, both full and an empty! It’s a GREAT bottle. I have quite a big collection of near to full quart size ACLs. Ones with shape to them, like this, or fancy glass are my interest.

    Wanted: Similar Vintage Soda Bottles

    In particular, condition is a high priority. Frankly, these days it’s pretty hard for me to find a soda bottle that I want, because I’ve got so many already. If I get any more, they practically have to be like this.

    Wanted: Similar Vintage Soda Bottles

    Nice ones all. Might buy Dr. Pepper, but not as a single bottle. Shipping just too much. Thank you.

    Wanted: Similar Vintage Soda Bottles

    Nice ones, but I’ve got them already. I’ve got around a 1000 now. They have to be really exceptional, rarity and condition, for me to need them. for me to need them.

    Art Deco Superlative

    Another ‘proper‘ Art Deco soda, one made in the twenties (could be thirties as well). This one has a design patent date of 1925, and was made in 1928.

    Art Deco Sodas WANTED

    I’m trying to get more (eventually all) of my bottles photographed. It’s actually pretty ironic that photographing them ends up being the way I look at them, just like I could be the pictures from eBay! No reason to buy the bottle really! In fact, I like posing them together, in any...

    Art Deco Sodas WANTED

    Got some more together for group pics. None are rare, but definitely uncommon in NM condition.

    Art Deco Superlative

    I don’t think the era matters, unless what you mean is that the older ones got used less. Then again, they’ve been around longer, giving them more time to suffer. Here is a listing from Worthpoint, showing the bottle with lots of case wear. A bottle in this condition I simply don’t want. It’s...

    Art Deco Superlative

    To me, this is a really special bottle. Just arrived, it’s like new for being nearly 100 years old (made in ‘28), by Three Rivers Glass, something that appeals to many. I just feel very lucky, very good. Put it right onto the top shelf, where it belongs!

    Pre-statehood Hawaiian Sodas

    Purchased these three pre-statehood Hawaiian bottles, all in NM condition. I’m mainly an Art Deco soda collector, but my favorite here is the big one that is the plainest in terms of glass. Go figure. I have around a dozen others, those being a lot more like the sodas I mainly collect, ornate...

    I WON A BOTTLE ON AN AUCTION... BUT!!!!!

    I don’t blame you at all. In fact, I know how you feel. It could be a mistake, but more likely somebody, effectively, stole your bottle. We lived in England for a few years and I’d go to automobilia auctions. I won something once, but by the time I went to get it to take it home, it was...
