A Picture’s Worth a Thousand Words Gallery

I felt like I needed to create a space on the Menu Bar above to house some of my favorite pictures that you all post. This Gallery will be updated and evolve just like any gallery. Please keep all the good photography coming. I have really seen a dramatic upswing in the quality of bottle and glass photography led by veterans and followed by others who appreciate their glass a desire to capture a moment.

Hi Ferdinand, For the Fourth of July holiday I have attached a picture of some red, white and blue glass attributed to the Boston and Sandwich Glass Factory. The small kerosene lamp to the left has a font with swirled latticinio red, white and blue canes. The glass bell has individual red, white and blue swirled canes in the handle. Next to the bell is a small free blown scent bottle in milk glass with blue and red pulled loop marbrie decoration. The large lamp is a solar lamp with a red, white and blue marbrie decorated base with a cobalt bead of glass around the bottom edge. It has a patriotic shield cut on the shade, circa 1850-60. Last is a blown wide mouth bottle in milk glass with red and blue marbrie decoration. This bottle was probably used as a tea caddy. It came from the family of Benjamin Haines, a prominent member of the Sandwich glassworks. Happy Fourth! – Rob Girouard

Having some fun with the camera in the bottle room and wanted to share a photo. Demijohns sure make a handsome display and provide the biggest bang for the buck in the bottle collecting world! Gene Ainsworth
