Names on bottles


This is an attempt to help people find a bottle with a specific name on it. The list is alphabetical and if there is more than one name on the bottle, it is listed once for each name. I keep updating my inventory but if sales are brisk at a show every sale may not get recorded. I will try to keep it up to date but I do make mistakes. These bottles date from the 1820’s to the early 1900’s but most are from the 1870’s through the 1890’s.

If I no longer have the bottle you want, you will at least know that such a bottle exists and I may well be able to find you another. Since I don't know if I still have all the bottles on the list, I will determine a fair price when I find the one desired and can judge its condition and rarity. Most will be in the $10-$20 range but a few are fairly rare and will cost considerably more. Shipping by Priority Mail will depend on your zip code and the bottle's weight. I do not attempt to add to my profits by inflating the shipping (I just spent $50 for peanuts so there are shipping costs). Please click here to email me with any queries.

Note: I have started listing unusual town & city names below the name listing. I will not bother to list common places like New York City or Baltimore as everyone knows that these exist. These will be listed alphabetical by town/city at the bottom of this page.

I often update this page so reload & check it again if you are looking for a particular name or place. This page last updated 6/28/2015.
