Hello everyone,

Whoever went to Baltimore Bottle show yesterday, I hope you enjoyed it. It was nice to chat with some of you and find a few nice bottles for my NYC collection.

This piece was found in a box under a table and for a few bucks I couldn't miss it. Never saw this one and a quick search didn't produce any results. It's tall (9.5") and wide (3 7/8") octagonal bottle, quite heavy. Says SCHOMBURG & Co. Any ideas?

I've seen those a few times over the years....they appear to be a less successful Gilka competitor from Germany.

Thank you, I especially like the way it feels in the hand. it does look very similar to Gilka. Search for Gilka produced a lot of pictures but nothing for Schomburg. I guess less successful means fewer bottles.
