Brand new hutch bottle from @logan.the.collector

GEO Jones, Fonda N.Y. Hutchinson, (was) in mint condition. After spending almost a whole week in some USPS facility in Massachusetts (not within shipping route...), I opened the package to this!

Logan had it insured and was able to refund me for the bottle. At least it is not a very rare/expensive bottle and it is not local so I am not too mad about it. In fact I glued it back together and it still displays nicely despite having cracks.

Here's another bottle I bought from him. Luckily it wasn't broken, and he even sent me a nice Whitall Tatum Co No 1 insulator for free because I didn't have one yet.

Anyways, thank you @logan.the.collector for the sweet deal and the insulator.

Sucks! I usually throw a paper cup filled with packing peanuts over the top of a bottle and then wrap it with newspaper or bubble wrap or whatever. 100% success rate so far (but I'm sure a shipping employee will eventually take a golf club to one of my packages for fun and ruin my record eventually)

He had it wrapped in several layers of bubble wrap so it must have taken a real beating. Employees probably spent the whole week playing hot potato with it.

Sent bottles thru them for 20 years and never had this happen or even close. Have had some bottles sent to me in questionable containers and wondered how they even made it,(sent in bags is no way to send glass but people do it to save themselves a few bucks). Bubble wrap- double box and styrofoam is the way to go people.

as my post named States, millions of packages sent every day nothing happens to them, I have had bottles break on my shelf, oh they're very old bottles. I'm sure there's bad employees in every business, not much you can do about that. Giddy up

I was sent 3 blob bottles in a padded envelope. I have no idea how they made it in one piece.

I sent some expensive cut glass pieces to my brother across the country, and I put them in hard plastic containers, basically indestructible.

Years ago a father-in-law sent his daughter and me a package with glassware in it, and it looked like UPS drove a forklift through it. I tried to get some money from USP for what they did, but they wouldn't give me anything, and they blamed the damage on poor packaging.

I just got a little clock from Bulgaria, and I was surprised it came in perfect condition, even though it wasn't packaged that well.

ohhh, I've had many many Broken Bottles arrive through the mail. as seen in some of my past Pics in here. Usually due to poor incompetent Packaging from non Bottle Collectors or just Stupid People that have no Idea Glass is Fragile & easily Breaks. BUT, I get pissed off to see my Package say FRAGILE GLASS HANDLE WITH CARE all over outside of Box but it looks like it was used as a Football in the Super Bowl all Beat to Hell.
