    I had another guy tell me that in last 20 years the only one recorded to sell at Auction was in 2008 for $2,000.00. Wonder if Prices gone up or down since then? LEON.

    Barring someone finding a cache of a particular bottle, I don't think any of the rarer bitters bottles have gone down in price, not even in this leaden economy. Good glass has been a good investment over my lifetime.

    I had another guy tell me because it has a chip in bottom corner it's only worth $350? Makes me wonder why my buddy paid $12,000 for a Square amber bitters with a big crack across it? LEON.

    Hi there,

    A couple of the bottles that were pictured in this post made me think of a bottle I had just picked up. It is a slick amber bottle with an applied lip and I was hoping someone had an idea as to what it was for? It is large at about 14 inches tall with a 4 inch diameter at the base.

    Looks like a pretty standard quart-sized beer or other beverage bottle. Not super common in Canada although they were used in some places, particularly Southern Ontario. Also fairly unusual for it to not have any embossing.

    Thanks CB but this bottle seems much larger than a quart. Here is another pic for size against a regular bottle and also up against a half gallon fruit jar!Click image for larger version.

    I'm going to guess that's a half gallon mineral water pre 1930 missing it's paper label. The only other bottles I have & have seen similiar to this is what they call the Picnic Beer Bottle but I think those only came out in a crown top bottle around 1935 to 1940's time frame & they are 64 oz. or half gallon.

    Thanks Leon! After looking at lots of pic’s online it totally looks like a picnic beer bottle. I did see pic’s of other picnic beer bottles with similar finishes so not just the crown tops. Too bad this didn’t have the original label or embossing...that would’ve been a find ��

    All my 1/2 gallon water bottles have that blob top while all my 1/2 gallon beers have the crown top. But all my waters are embossed while my beers are paper label. LEON.
