Here are some of my eclectic bottles that I keep in a display cabinet. They change as I acquire new ones.
I mainly collect pontiled sodas, mineral waters and embossed, pontiled mustards. These are displayed in my window.
Thank you for the compliment about my bottles.
Always had a weak spot for cathedrals. One time had some killer cathedral pickles, pepper sauces, just about any cathedrals.
Have a few more sauces that are on another shelf, some O/P, others smooth based.
Glad you enjoyed my pics.
Sometimes, you just can't help yourself and you just have to have that bottle.
For me, these were just some of those type of bottles.
Then, you see another have to have bottle and you have sell one in order to have that new one.
My thirst is never quite quenched.
I hope to find/buy some beauties like that some day. Right now just starting out with a good mix of early 1900s and some old milks etc. I’ll reach out when I’m ready to add some true antiques to the collection.
Thanks for saying my bottles look that good.
The cathedral on the left is supposely a rather rare one, not sure. It was dug in New Orleans then sold to a collector in Florida. It was lightly tumbled and then I bought it from him at a really reasonable price.
I was going to send it off to an auction house for resale, but my wife talked me into keeping it.
I'll post some pictures later this week.
In all my years of collecting antique bottles, I've never owned or had the chance to buy one of this type of cathedral, so I thank my wife for her suggestion to keep it.
The cathedral pepper sauce on the right appears to have a type of iron pontil. I just can't figure out if its pontiled.
The K-1 and the small coffin poison I got from Rudy Kuhn just before he passed away. Rudy was a very good person. Super nice and very smart.
I also have a large Rough On Rats poster that belonged to Rudy.
