With applied and pour spout mouth and handle and pontil Here’s a change from the bitters category in this early whiskey. A pleasing yellow amber, this has just a bit of interior haze which really doesn’t detract from the overall presentation. Embossing is strong in the circle on front, rigaree and mouth are perfect, really […]
(G 101) Applied top. A real stand out in the bitters category, this green example is loaded with whittle and all around crudity. Condition is great with just a minor “wet spot,” on the lip (see video). Looking for earlier comparisons we found an example from the Burt Spiller sale lot number 38. Originally obtained […]
Ct. 9 ¼”. Applied top. A rectangular aqua bitters, these are also quite rare. We are only aware of three selling up to now and this may be one of them. There is a tiny flake off the side lip edge, very tiny, see video. Ex-Carolyn Ring collection. Grades a 9.7 without the lip distraction. […]
8 ½”. (H 90) Applied top. Another beauty with a very drippy top. Considered pretty darn rare, there is some crudity and the bottle is in great shape. No distractions of any kind. Another rare bottle in a grade 9.8. Ex-Carolyn Ring collection.
8 ¼”. Applied top, smooth base. (G 6.5) Here is another rare aqua square, we are only aware of one selling at auction. This has the nice fat lettering and some nice crudity. Condition is superior. Another neat bitters we have never seen. Grades a 9.7.
Applied top, 9 ¼”. (R 66). Another scarce bitters with the applied top, just a neat square with inset panels, this is a nice medium to lighter amber. Very clean and striking color. There is a small open bubble on the “R,” in Rising, see pictures. Otherwise the bottle is about perfect. Would be a […]
Applied top, with Wm McC & Co. 8 7/8”. (M 59) Here’s a rare bottle that also comes in a true blue. We are only aware of two selling at auction, the other example was aqua. This has the applied top and was made at McCully Glass Works in Pittsburgh. A super condition example, really […]
Applied top. Thomas 55, 1875-80. Here’s a bottle that, according to John Thomas, there were only two known of as of 1969. I would think today there are probably more than a half-dozen or so, still, not very many. Also according to Thomas these come in yellow and other shades of amber. With two known […]
10” - Tooled top. (P 74). If this were a rare bottle think how much they would sell for? Well thank goodness they aren’t and can be had for reasonable money. You have a lot going for them with the ribbing and great name. This one is about perfect with really no distractions, someone will find […]
With stylized design on roof edges. Applied top, smooth base. (Ring/Ham W-3) Here’s a nice overall example of this popular bitters. A medium to deeper amber with some orange, here’s a nice example in about perfect condition. Grades a 9.8.
