I am looking to purchase the above bottles.
Presently, I have over 200 pre-prohibition labeled whiskies, in the sizes above.
Sames goes for demi-johns. At the present time, I have over 70 demi-johns in all sizes and shapes. I'm looking for colors I don't have.
I am also looking for German Half-Post bottles, in sizes that I don't already have. I believe I have over 40 German Half-Post bottles.
Also, let me bring in my embossed pre-prohibition whiskey fifths/quarts. I have well over 100 with about 29 of them labeled. I don't know how many embossed pre-prohibition pints, half-pints I have, however, the count is well over 150 maybe over 200. They're still boxed from my recent move along with my large collection of embossed pre-1900 food bottles. Also, I'm not sure how many pre-prohibition miniature liquor bottles I have, however I do know I have about 15 labeled.
Will travel in the southeast if you have a collection to sell, cash on hand.
I've been digging/buying since the mid-'70s

Greetings, Frank. It's usually no fun having an extensive bottle collection unless you can show it (or some of it) to other collectors. How about some images of your demijohns . . . show me yours and I'll show you mine.

My posting was asking for folks that might have bottles that I don't have and would be interested in selling.
I did think about posting photos and will in the very new future, so stay tuned in. I have an older flip phone that's a bit*ch to text with so I'll get a buddy with an iPad to come over and help me out.

Texting?? What need of texting to post images here? You're not one of those cowboys who are all hat and no cows, are you? An extensive/expensive bottle collection should be photographed for insurance purposes, at a minimum.

Like I said before cowgirl, when I get someone over to my house I'll have them photograph them and put them out for all to see as I'm still living in the touch-tone phone era if that's all right with you!
In other words, I'll jump right on to satisfy you!

I just went to your site again and noticed that it looks like it hasn't been updated in at least a year, when the last comment was posted! What's up with no new news from the "Cowboy of Demi-Johns!"
