I picked up an old bottle book titled "Antique Whiskey Bottles" and was pursuing it. On page 44 I came across a bottle that I have to know more about, it is titled the "Eagle Bottle". The description goes on to say that the bottle has 32 embossed eagles with spread wings, is deep amethyst in color and is embossed "A & S Co." on the bottom. I have included the scan of the cover, a poor picture of the bottle and the description. What can anyone tell me about this little gem?

The only bottles that I saw embossed with A.G. & S. Co. were milk bottles.Maybe the Deep Amethyst color was actually puce. I wonder if it could have been A.G. & Co. and they read it wrong? I doubt that but here is a PDF FILE about the company anyway.That is a very interesting whiskey for sure.

I suspect that this bottle is Australian and the A.G. Co. stands for Agee Glass Company. I don't KNOW this but I also suspect that it was removed from later books on American whiskey books for this reason. I have had numerous bottles from Australia that have somewhat garish embossing.

Well, If anyone kicks one of these bottles up I would be willing to pay $8 to $15 depending on condition of course. [:)] I will even cover shipping!
