The Black Elephant, Iron Front & the Sedberry flasks are my rarest bottles. I have 28 Texas whiskey/saloon bottles, 40 Texas pre pro shot glasses and 10 Texas corkscrews. I've been collecting since I got out of the Marine Corps in 1998.
I would like to have pictures of any TX whiskey bottles, jugs, mini jugs and shot glasses you have or your friends have. I'm putting a website together with all the TX bottles, jugs, mini jugs and shot glasses I can get my hands on. I will have have all the city directories and Texas gazetteer and Brad dunn info on TX saloons. And also a link where you can get all the TX Sanborn maps that are available.
I've been collecting since 98 when I got out of the Marine Corps. Any info you can share would be appreciated. Thanks for the help
This is what I have now
1. Whiskey bottle 115
2. Jug 104
3. mini 154
My one and only Texas bottle. I stopped by a shop in Americus, Ga. one day for the first time, didn't see much at all, and asked the owner if he had any bottles. He said that he had a few in back (not many, maybe one box). One of the bottles was a only known pint Americus flask, which he eventually sold to me. I stopped by a couple of months later and he had another box in back that a old fella had come walking up the street toting on his shoulder. In it was the Holley and a half-pint version of the Americus flask of which there are only a handful known. He my bes' friend, now!
