I love everything in your collection. I also like the display shelves. I am about as old school as you can get. I am not the best with computers, and i went to school for them! Thank you for posting, it was an absolute pleasure to view.

I routed out all the vertical ends for the shelves to fit in. This fall I'll cut/nail strips to cover up where the shelves fit in.
I still have roughly 200+ plus embossed half-pints/pints to put up. I also have a large pre-1900 food bottle collection, along with inks, and sodas. Almost forgot my black glass collection.
I'm always on the lookout for a "loaf of bread" demi-john to purchase and colors I don't have.
Here a photo's of my collections from 4 years ago, before I sold that house and bought the one I'm in now! Barking dogs ran me out of that neighborhood!

I like it quiet also. No rush on the shelf improvements. How long have you been collecting and what got you into it? That is the new home? No dogs I hope.

Frank, I see you travel the southeast for purchases. In which state do you live?

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

Frank, I have about 200 - 300 miniature liquor bottles from 1934 -1937, unopened. Plus about 400-500 miniature liquor bottles from 1938 - 1950. Here are a few pics of them crowded on shelves.
