I sold hundreds of Bromos several years ago when people were putting these "Bottle Trees" in their yards and gardens, at one point I could get $15-20 apiece for larger ones. I'd put 2-3 on my table at the local flea-market at a time and women would come by and buy all 2,3,4 on the table at a time and as soon as they got out of sight I'd load the table back up. Good money while it lasted.

Is it irradiated, or just a gift shop repro? I don't think I have ever seen a irradiated bottle that color, but I don't look at them when I see them.

Wow I still throw them back. U can only give away so many. The large quart is great for marbles though.

I didn’t know this was a forum for questioning other peoples way of speaking.. I’m just here for jar collecting. Irradiated jars/bottles are a huge pain in the butt for those trying to preserve the history … And when buying online there is no way to do a test. No reason to attack.. what was confusing or irrational about the fear or that a jar might be irradiated? keep it civil please. also, check blue glassware on ebay .. beautiful examples with no bids. i see many tables of irradiated blue jars and bottles at the local flea markets. irradiation was once called the “atomic bomb” of glass collecting.View attachment 207329
