Well I consider myself completely blown away by the selling price of that 2.5" cobalt U.S.A. Hosp. Dept bottle on Glass Works auction #129. I would have guessed $600 on the high side and $350 on the low side. That little puppy went for $1300.00!! At least 2 people sure did want it badly!
I hear ya, brother. If I could hit the lottery, I'd be such a pain in the ass to all the "advanced" collectors out there. That term has always irritated the hell out of me. They don't know more about or love bottles more than any of us; they just have the jack.
Thought I would post a couple more of my more scarce. Although they are both aqua, the lip on these are what make them rarer. You very rarely see a blob top lip on an aqua quart or pint. They most always have the flange type collar. Unfortunately I wasn't lucky enough to dig either one of these. Had to drop some serious coin. Here's papa quart and baby pint.
