Beautiful blue museum!!!

I hope you have some clear museum putty under those bottles.
It reminds me of bowling alley pins.

Some of you might remember a old post from a couple of Months ago where I had a Lighted Display Cabinet but no Shelves & was a Discussion of getting Glass or Plexiglass Shelves. Finally was able to get some thick, 1/4 inch thick Glass for shelves. Here they are. LEON.View attachment 222354View attachment 222355View attachment 222356
I just want to look thru your collection, there! I’ve got those same expensive tastes in bottles, but nowhere as many blue sodas as you have- still, that’s my weakness. I guess your my mentor.... That’s beautiful. I’m curious, because I haven’t seen another- do u own a bottle like this? Won on a slot machine at a bottle show on $0.25- the guy was bragging to the other vendors how much $ he made on that all weekend- he about cried and started trying to substitute all kinds of lesser bottles... probably at this point in life I would have let him keep it, but back then? I wanted that bottle! (Sorry, dude... but.... jackpot, Kat! Now I feel bad....)‍♀

Beautiful display and some really nice bottles.
I had the same question as you about glass verus plexiglass for a kichten display. I found that the glass was much stronger and didn't scratch like plexiglass.

NO, Don't have that Bottle. That's a nice one. All mine in that Display Cabinet are all from Michigan. Many from Detroit or Detroit area. Out of the probably 2000 bottles I have probably 95% are Michigan Bottles. Where is yours from? LEON.

I think around the Bay Area, Cali... but don’t quote me on that? It’s been years since I looked it up,-here’s my best excuse for not really remembering-(Famous words around here “hey, did u know I died for 5 minutes after surgery? It was cool! I saw grandma!”).
Works like a charm! All memory glitches are excused after that, whether that’s the reason or not? Handy, no?
