August 2013 – Antique Bottle & Glass Photo Gallery


Good Pitkin Morning – Tom Marshall

Apple-Touch-IconAI thought I would take a moment to group some of the really remarkable photographs that have been posted on Early American Glass and Bottle Collectors on facebook this past month. The composition, lighting, content and care taken with each picture is evident.

Isn’t it great to see this movement to stage and group bottles in still life settings? This was evident at the Manchester National when a number of these collectors like Noordsy, George, Olson and Marshall set up extraordinary displays. Here below, you will see flasks, utility bottles, fruit jars, inks, pickle bottles, cures, whimsies and so much more. Enjoy. Great job everyone.
