Gotta Luv those Western Curved R’s

Incoming email and pics from Western Collector Mike McKillop…those Bay Rums are killer! Read more on Western Bitters News

Hi Ferdinand,

I thought you might like to see some of my western green curved R bitters. I believe that the 1870’s was the golden age of western glass making, and nothing shows that better than western curved R bottles. Curved R bottles were only made at the S.F. & Pacific Glass Works, when C. Newman owned the company during the 1870’s. No other glass company used that style of R in their molds. TRUE WESTERN GLASS……I threw in another pic of two western bay rums with curved R’s.

Thanks Mike McKillop
