Born & Co. beer bottle

This is a large antique beer bottle produced by Born & Co. of Columbus, OH. The company was founded in 1869 by Julius Kremer, an immigrant from Dinslaken, Rheinpreussen, Germany, and had 40 employees in 1887, but that’s all the information I have been able to find about this company’s history. I did manage to discover a Born & Co. advertisement (now owned by the Ohio Historical Society) published in 1894 in the “Railroad, County and Township Map of Ohio and Business Directory of the Representative Business Houses,” but I have no idea how long the company remained in business. This bottle is a deep amber brown color, quite heavy, and stands 11-3/4" tall, with diameters of 1" at its mouth and 2-7/8" at its base. Front has an embossed oval in which are the words “Born & Co. Columbus, O.” Perfect condition with no nicks, chips, or cracks, and some of the most remarkable glass bubbles I’ve ever seen, including a huge one (1/2" x 2-1/2") on the front! A neat addition to your bottle and/or breweriana collection. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Pair of Grolsch beer bottles

This is a pair of neat old Grolsch beugel (“the gurdle”) beer bottles, one amber and one green. Both have the famous Grolsch white porcelain stoppers that swing off by means of a wire bale mechanism, eliminating the need for a bottle opener (and also securely recapping the bottle to prevent any remaining contents from going flat). Both bottles have four iterations of the Grolsch logo embossed around the bottle, above which is “Grolsch” in the company’s script. The green bottle retains its entire label, identifying its original contents as being 42.3 CL (1 pint) of Grolsch Lager Beer. The brown bottle retains only the upper portion of its label saying “Grolsch Lager Beer.” Both bottles were presumably originally bought in the U.S. because the stopper on the green bottle says “Grolsch Georgia” in red and the stopper on the amber bottle says “Grolsch Florida” in green. By the way, Grolsch’s porcelain stoppers gave way to plastic stoppers a number of years ago, and traditional metal-capped Grolsch bottles are becoming increasingly prevalent. Apparently bottles with porcelain stoppers are only available in the Netherlands today. Grolsch is a Dutch brewery founded in 1615 by Willem Neerfeldt in Groenlo,  then known as Grolle, hence the name Grolsch. Grolsch is currently the second largest brewer in the Netherlands (after Heineken) with annual production of 3.2 million hectoliters. The domestic market comprises fifty per cent of total production, but the Grolsch family of beers is available in 70 countries, with the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, France, Australia and New Zealand making up 78% of Grolsch’s international sales. Grolsch beers were originally imported into the U.S. by United States Beverage, then by Anheuser-Busch from 2006-2008 when Grolsch was bought out by SABMiller. Both of our old empty Grolsch bottles are in perfect condition with no nicks, chips, or cracks. They stand 9-1/2" high when capped with diameters of 1" at their mouths and 2-3/4" at their bases. Both of the flip-up wire bale mechanisms still work and the green bottle’s stopper is easily dislodged. However, the brown bottle’s stopper is tightly in place and we have made no attempt to force it out. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Price: $25.00 for the pair + s/h and insurance

Lowenbrau mystery clock

This is a great old Lowenbrau mystery clock, so called because its frosted hands are mounted in a clear acrylic face with no obvious way of driving them to keep time. Mystery clocks have always been popular collectibles, and the advertising ones even more so. This electric clock features a goldtone clock ring flanked by the two sculptured goldtone Lowenbrau lions, all of which rest on a large dark brown base that says “Special Lowenbrau Beer” on the front. When turned on via push switch on the curved base back, a light in the base illuminates the “Lowenbrau” and also the clock and lions via two long cutouts in the base top. The time set knob is also on the base back. Piece measures 13-1/4" x 4-1/2" x 8" tall. Bottom is dated Aug. 17, 1979 and retains its original sticker saying “Lakeside Ltd., Mpls, Minn.” Four little rubber knob feet keep the base slightly elevated and prevent scratching. Outstanding vintage condition, with no dings, dents, cracks, or scratches, but the left umlaut dot above the “A”is missing its little raised dot. Both the clock and the light work. What a super addition for your home bar! (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Miller High Life clock

This 8" x 14-1/2" x 3" deep Miller High Life electric wall clock is a great addition to your home bar or any other room in which you want to add a touch of whimsy. Faux wood case surrounds the clock face and light box whose red front panel contains the Miller High Life logo and says “Welcome to Miller time” as well as “1982 Beer Brewed by the Miller Brewing Company, Milwaukee, WI.” Clock face is white with black numerals, black hands, and a red sweep second hand, and slopes inwardly from top to bottom. Base lights up via a Christmas tree style light bulb that also illuminates the clock face. Back retains its original labels. Great vintage condition with one small scratch at bottom of red front panel. Clock keeps perfect time, although the sweep second hand flutters. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Muehlebach pilsner bottle with Karl Hutter stopper

Here’s a wonderful piece of history from America’s Heartland: a large antique pilsner bottle from the George Muehlebach Brewery of Kansas City, complete with its original Karl Hutter porcelain stopper and wire bale fastener! Two brothers, George & John Muehlebach, founded the brewery in 1868. By 1879 it had become the second largest in Kansas City, and their pilsner beer was a local favorite. After Karl Hutter of New York patented his porcelain stopper in 1893, Muehlebach used these stoppers for its bottles until around 1915. The brewery prospered for decades, nearly went bust during prohibition and the great depression, had a strong resurgence in the 1940's, but was ultimately sold in 1956 to Schlitz, which itself closed shop in 1973. The Muehlebach family had long since become local icons and were responsible for building the first baseball stadium in KC, as well as the grand Muehlebach Hotel, a favorite hangout of President Truman (another “local boy”), and a downtown landmark to this day. Okay, enough with the history. This dark amber brown bottle stands 12" tall when stoppered and is 3-1/2" in diameter at its base. The front is embossed “Geo. Muehlebach, Kansas City, MO”. The attractive white porcelain stopper carries the Muchlebach logo of a white cross in a red shield, with “Muehlebach’s” above and “Pilsner” below, as well as “Trade Mark” immediately underneath the shield. The underside of the stopper reads “K. Hutter” and “Pat’d. Feb. 7, 1893". The wire bale mechanism is rusty, but still works. Lots of neat air bubbles in the bottle, which is in perfect condition with no nicks, chips, or cracks. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Coca-Cola delivery wagon

This delightful antique cast iron Coca-Cola horse-drawn delivery wagon is a pure shot of nostalgia from days long gone by. Four separate iron pieces: the 9-1/4" x 3-1/2" x 4-1/2" tall red wagon that says “Drink Coca-Cola in bottles” in white lettering on the sides; the 8-3/4" x 3-3/4" x 4-1/4" high front wheel assembly and two brown horses with white socks; the 2-1/4" tall driver dressed in green who perches on the wagon seat; and the 3-1/2" diameter red and white Coca-Cola umbrella with long pole that fits into a little hole in the seat. From the shape of the driver’s hands, I’ll bet this toy originally included some kind of reins that have long since disappeared. Eight little plastic cases, 2 red and 4 yellow, feature divider inserts that allow them to hold 12 bottles apiece, but as you might expect from such an old well-loved toy, many of the tiny 7/8" tall brown plastic bottles have also been lost. 26 of them remain, each the classic Coke bottle shape, complete with red cap! There are even four remaining flexible plastic case lids, two of which are cracked, but two of which are astonishingly intact! One of the yellow cases has a chipped place and another has lost its red lettering on the side. When all the parts are fitted together, the piece measures 13-1/2" x 3-1/2" x 8-1/2" tall and weighs nearly 6 pounds! No rust at all, and the large spoked wheels turn freely. What a marvelous addition to your Coke collection! (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Nostalgic green Coke glass

I can’t remember how many wonderful afternoons I spent with friends long ago at the local drug store soda fountain drinking Cokes out of green Coke glasses and catching up on all the high school gossip.

Dr. Pepper pocket mirror

This is a 3" x 2" Dr. Pepper pocket mirror. Mirror back carries the famous Dr. Pepper logo saying “Drink Dr. Pepper, Good for Life!” and the equally famous slogan “Drink a Bite to Eat” followed by a clock showing only the numbers 10, 2, and 4. Charles Alderton, the pharmacist at Morrison’s Old Corner Drug Store in Waco, Texas, first concocted Dr. Pepper in 1885 and gave the recipe to the store owner, Wade Morrison, and a young beverage chemist, Robert S. Lazenby. Morrison came up with the name, but nobody really knows where he got it. One story says that a pharmacist named Dr. Charles Pepper gave Morrison his first job, so Morrison returned the favor by naming the new drink after him. In the 1920s, Lazenby’s son-in-law, J.B. O’Hara, discovered research showing that sugar provided energy and that most people experience a let-down during the work day at around 10:30am, 2:30pm, and 4:30pm, thus originating the advertising slogan, “Drink a bite to eat at 10, 2, and 4.” Our pocket mirror is in perfect condition. Price includes shipping to anywhere in the U.S. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.
