September 2013 – Antique Bottle & Glass Photo Gallery

3MasonicsNewmanThree Masonics – Mike Newman

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.

Remember to try to post a large enough file so the picture is crisp. It always helps to caption the picture too.

VesuviusBottlesEvery once in a while I like to repeat my search requests or they end up way down the line somewhere. Have any of you ever seen this bottle? I am looking for them. They are all blown with applied handles and usually a pontilled base. The name of the product was Vesuvius…and I believe it held wine. I have 6 of them that I’ve managed to acquire over the years… –  Marlena VanHelsing Antique Bottles
