    I wonder if anyone could tell us if this is scarce in this dark puce colour at all please?
    It's lot #133 in our current auction (AAA4 ...http://www.aaauctionsltd.com/auction...bin/CATALL.CGI )
    Any help would be much appreciated.
    We also have this black bear (lot 132) which we presume to be American too?

    Those items will do well in your auction Alan.

    Hope all goes well on your side of the pond.

    Thanks Jim, I hope so too. We see very few of these fabulous bitters bottles over here so have no idea of desirability. I'll keep my fingers crossed!

    Thanks Jim, it'll be interesting to see just how well they do in this auction! (as an aside, do you know that we have bottles embossed 'WAW-WAW' over here in Britain?)

    I do know that, I've bought a few. I need more, HELP ! I've also gotten them from Australia and South Africa. I'm particularly looking for the larger size, over 7 1/2" tall. And, any with labels, even partial.

    Thank you, I don't think it's the same type thing I specialize in but I'll try to find it. I'm basically 'puter' illiterate but maybe I'll get lucky.

    I have always thought the "kummel bears" were German or maybe Russian. I've seen a lot but none had a maker mark to my recollection.
