    I took some more pictures, what threw me off was the flat tops of the bottles.

    Having seen the bases of the two suspected reproduction flasks I would now agree, reproductions.
    On flasks of this type you would be looking for pontils something similar to those shown in the
    photograph below which are a couple of examples from my own collection.

    In respect of the flask you have annotated as 'Bottle 14' it has all the appearances of a late bottle.
    I'm not sure you could describe it as a reproduction as I don't think it is actually reproducing any known examples?
    Possibly best described as a 'Vintage Style Reproduction'!!

    Thank you for the info.....let’s hope I didn’t overpay for the collection.

    Yeah it's an odd collection, a mix of some beautiful specimins of early American glass, some modern Pier One Imports decorative type stuff, and a couple of near-worthless common liquor bottles. Still, there is a good number of genuine ones there, so assuming you didn't pay a massive amount you likely got your money's worth.
    Going through the pictures you've posted so far I'd say: Picture 1 - the little blue one is modern and I think the other two are antiques but not sure what they actually are. Picture 2 - middle flask is likely genuine but not certain, round green one is probably modern, case gin is antique but pretty common. Picture 3 - Too far outside my area of knowledge to say for sure but I'd guess antique. Picture 4 - two on the left are modern, second from right looks interesting but I really don't know what it is, far right is a common UK gin ca. 1910. Picture 5 - Two on the left are very good flasks, second from right is a common post-prohibition bottle, far right I can't see what it is but doesn't look too old. Picture 6 - all but the far right look very good.

    The 2 Green flask looked like reproductions to me. SO, I'd have a professional appraiser/Bottle Expert analyze the rest to verify Authentic & not reproductions. Just my ameture opinion, I'm no bottle expert. LEON.

    These are the bottles that I believe have value as well with some better pictures. Thanks for all of the help!

    They all look good but I would certainly think about getting an expert opinion on the pitcher and decanters.
    Genuine 3 piece mold items such as these can command premium prices

    It should be borne in mind, however, that many similar reproduction pieces were manufactured by the Clevenger Brothers.

    A useful link concerning the Clevenger Brothers which includes some of the diagnostic tell tales to identify their pieces.

    The Metropolitan Museum of Art also commissioned reproduction 3 piece mold items
    in the 1970's such as the one shown below from my own collection.
    These, however, are easily identified with the embossed MMA mark incorporated into the design.
