Bottles and Inkwells

"$25 for that wine bottle? But it's EMPTY!"

(Casual observer watching an onlne auction of an antique bottle)



Bottle collecting is a hobby unto itself, and deserving of it's own page. Also, the dating of glass items in an inexact science. Many designs and styles span many years; unless noted, these all date from the mid-late 1800's. Due to the fragile nature of these pieces, we suggest postal insurance on orders of value, as we can not be responsible for breakage in the mail. But rest assured that each piece will be packaged with care by us! Most of these were found in Savannah, Georgia. Being dug, some are uncleaned, but will require only a bit of effort to make them sparkle.
