Pictures of the Week (06 January 2013)

This is the first weekly round-up of some really nice photography from various antique bottle and glass web sites that have surfaced in the previous week. It seems that winter sunlight and new snow has influenced many of still life pictures that appear below.

Make sure you visit the Fresh Peach Gallery which represents the best of the best pictures from 2012.

I was fortunate enough to acquire (2) more Lockports and both are rare colors. The cornflower blue example is one of two known with some impressive provenance. Ex John Pastor, Ex Mark Yates. The yellow olive green one is a slayer! I now have (11) different colored examples and (9) different mold variants of the …” FROM THE LABORATORY//OF/G.W. MERCHANT/CHEMIST//LOCKPORT, N.Y. These are personal favorites. For Dave Kam and Peachridge Glass, I will post more pics in the next few days. Happy New Year Team….Rick Ciralli (Bottle Collectors FB)
