POW!! Gun Bottles
31 July 2014
There have been some pretty cool figural antique glass pistol and gun revolvers on the internet lately. I remember my father having a few of these bottles in a glass bowfront along with vintage glass clam shell bottles, little flasks and other drinking collectibles and treasures he had picked up over the years. I thought I would nest a few of these gun images. A word of wisdom. If you see any antique glass gun examples at the Lexington National Antique Bottle Show this weekend, and your mode of transportation is flying, do not take back in you carry-on luggage unless you want to be on CNN. POW!!
Why not. Made south of the border, down Mexico way, the Tequila Guns are beautifully realised glass bottles, filled with high-quality tequila. You even get a pair of shot glasses and a display stand. Put your hands up … if you want one. – Guns.com
Hello I found a bottle that is shaped like a revolver hand gun. It is about 4 inches long and 2 inches tall and 1 inch wide. It is missing the cap. I found it under the floorboards of a shed that I tore down. Please email me back if you have any info on something like this. Thanks – Digger Odell
