July 2014 – Antique Bottle & Glass Photo Gallery

RareGreen5LogDrakes

Apple-Touch-IconAHere we go with the July 2014 group of pictures (my favorites) culled from a few of the web and Facebook sites. Top honor goes to Jerry Forbes from the Big Sur area of California. Pictured above is an extremely rare 5-Log, Drakes Plantation Bitters. Seen usually in 6-Log and 4-Log molds, this baby is rare as hens teeth and being green, sends it into the stratosphere of desirability. This moved from a Florida collection to Jerry. What a nice photograph!
