Bill! That's a fantastic display! it would keep my attention for an hour, or more! Thanks for sharing and thanks for your feedback on mine.


...buhhhht... this weekend my girl friend and I did some display shake ups some cleaning and redisplaying. The Porter & Ales went out to the front room on the wall...

...and I decided to bring out most of my flask collection(that I could manage to unbury and locate). the GF decided it was time to feature them in the "jewelry box"

Yuppers, they are all N.J. or N.Y. and close to my town, except the Old Joe Gideon of course
Having a collection of regional/local flasks like that can be a challenge unless you can run into someone selling a bunch of theirs. I traded a guy a couple op scroll flasks for 15 hotel/saloon flasks -sold all the local (maryland) ones to a nearby collector and moved the rest fairly quickly, made out very well on that deal.

Nice I got to get started on a display case I like backlighting and window light.
Ditto! It might appear a bit sterile or industrial for some tastes, but I am convinced that backlighting is the best illumination method for displaying the detailed characteristics of the individual bottles themselves.
