Commonly called “case gin” or “taper gin” bottles since they would pack more efficiently to a case (6 to 24 bottles) than round bottles.
Bought this lot of large case gins yesterday. They weren’t cheap. Hope I did the right thing.
Woody Douglas posted this really fine picture of four case Gins (see above) last week on Early American Glass on facebook. I was immediately captivated by the image and the strength of the four Gin bottles grouped together. See more of Woody’s great pictures.
I rush home to squeeze in a shot at the two minute warning… then the sun fades into history! I caught a few ginnys!
This reminded me that I had a few other pictures of case gins tucked away. I have a few of these gins myself tucked away somewhere. Great bottles with tons of history.
