February 2014 – Antique Bottle & Glass Photo Gallery


Apple-Touch-IconAHere we go with the February 2014 group of pictures culled from a few of the web and Facebook sites that we all like. It looks like snow backgrounds are dominating the group of pictures this month which makes sense. What a great way to show off bottle colors! Truly some spectacular pictures. My favorite is the top picture of a detail of the mysterious “Landsberg Sphinx” by Steve Ketcham.
