HI medbottle. NO, not really. If it had not been made into a lamp it probably would not
have been in the store. THanks for the info. and yes I can wait.
Dale P.S. Isn't there someone that specializes in repairing cracks&holes in bottles?
Dale , SO far I have be unable to ID your Pickle bottle . Here's a link to the Willington that sold on Ebay http://www.maineantiquedigest.com/articles/pick0699.htm I had one of these in my hands a few years ago. It was in a local house (Stafford Ct ) that belonged to an old time dealer . A friend of mine bought the house and contents . I don't have all the info right in front of me but these are quite tall , around 14" . The one I held was much lighter in color . It was sold privately to a local collector /auctioneer and replaced a damaged one in his collection (corner was broken right off it ) that brought a very good price at auction. Dave A
Dale, as far as I know, no one has been able to repair cracks in bottles. There are several people that repair holes and chips with resin. On this forum, baltbottles does repairs, but I don't know if he's started doing amber bottles yet. The color matching can be a bear.
Hiya Dale. Just a quick update on that amber 6-sided pickle. One just sold in Heckler's most recent auction for $800.00, but adding in the buyer's penalty (oops...buyer's PREMIUM) and shipping, the price is closer to $900.00.
