One of the greatest Bitters bottles in existence, a Cassin’s Grape Brandy Bitters has changed hands and joined the already wonderful collection of Jerry and Helen Forbes of Carmel, California. I have been asking Jerry for pictures of this bottle since the deal closed in February prior, to the Baltimore show, and Jerry kindly obliged yesterday. The deal was brokered by Jeff Wichmann with American Bottle Auctions in Sacramento. WOW.
This bottle is certainly is familiar with some of us as it resided in Tennessee and Oregon, among other places before finding its new home in Carmel. Serioss congratulations Jerry. I hope to have one soon myself.
