    KY soda/mineral water bottle additions

    The bottle on far right is Jennerich & Epping, which from my notes is H. Epping, 1871-1872. Do you know if H. Epping was kin to John G. Epping?

    KY soda/mineral water bottle additions

    Added 3 KY bottles to my collection yesterday. These are in "as dug" condition and were dug in Louisville back in the 70'S or so. The Bakers and G are iron pontil.

    KY soda / mineral water bottles

    Yeah, hutchbook lists 9 embossing variations. I have 3 variations, but I got them at one time from a collection I bought. I'm not sure on their rarity for sure, but I don't think I've seen one pop up on ebay in the past few years I've been tracking KY hutches. So, I'd guess they aren't super...

    KY soda / mineral water bottles

    A few very knowledgeable KY collectors said it is a gravitating stopper, but it's listed on hutchbook as a hutch because it doesn't have the Matthew's patent info base embossing. I'm not totally sure but know it's a tough one.

    Lawrence kansas drug store bottle

    Sweet! I've lived in Lawrence a few times back in the late 90's...love that town. I'm from Olathe originally. Id love a Lawrence druggist, are they tough to find in general?

    Louisville KY Hutch collection

    Tim, 1 was not, and info sent to Ron already. A few of them had some minor variations from hutchbook, but I'm guessing those are because of hard to read embossing on the bottles used for the hutchbook listing.

    Louisville KY Hutch collection

    I finally bought the collection from him 2 weeks ago. Ended up with 32 hutches, with only 5 duplicates. I posted a picture of a green Geo Stang over in the favorite hutch thread.

    What is it?

    Howdy, a buddy of mine recently inherited a collection of bourbon bottles (mostly full) and other bourbon go-withs from his grandfather, who use to work in the bourbon industry here in KY. I was wondering if anyone could ID this piece of glass and maybe what it was used for? Is it...
