Glass Bottles

Tall slender cobalt blue bottle

If you love cobalt glass, you’ll salivate over this elegantly simple tall square cobalt bottle. Standing nearly 12-1/2" high, its base is 1-3/4" square and its four sides rise 9" before gently tapering to a long round neck and 1" diameter rolled top mouth. It would make a stunning bud vase. Can’t you just see it with a single yellow jonquil, a white tulip, or even a huge variegated peony? Wow! Unmarked bottom contains a 1-1/8" diameter slightly concave circle. Perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or scratches. (Click on picture for more images.)

Tall slender emerald bottle

Here is another elegantly simple tall tapered bottle that would make a stunning bud vase. This one is deep emerald green and stands 12-1/4" tall. Its base is a 1-7/8" square and the four sides rise like a pyramid for 10-1/2" before gently tapering to a long round neck and 1-1/4" diameter rolled top mouth. Bottom contains a 1-1/4" slightly concave square with an odd mark that I have been unable to identify. Perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or scratches, but a few straw marks here and there. (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.

Tall turquoise swirl glass bottle

This tall mold blown swirl glass bottle is an absolutely gorgeous deep, deep turquoise blue color, with very little green. It stands 15-1/2" tall with diameters of 1-1/2" at its mouth, 4-3/4" at its widest point, and 3-3/8" at its unmarked base. When displayed in front of a window, the gracefully curved swirls produce a sparkling quilted diamond effect. Wonderful air bubbles galore. Near perfect condition with no nicks, chips, or cracks, but there are a couple of vertical scratches and some manufacturing flaws consisting of horizontal rippling that can be felt but are difficult to see because of the glass pattern unless the angle of the light is just right.

Warner Tippecanoe bottle

This is one of the classic (and classically beautiful) Warner Tippecanoe bottles, ca. 1885-1895, in a deep amber color. Standing 9" tall with a base diameter of 2-7/8", it has the embossed canoe and tree bark and distinctive mushroom lip. One side says “Tippecanoe”, the other side says “H. H. Warner & Co.”, and the bottom says “Rochester N.Y.” with a 4 in the center. Absolutely perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or scratches. One elongated air bubble in the non-embossed portion of the bottle. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Huge crackle glass fish bottle

This is a remarkable crackle glass bottle in the shape of a fish that stands securely on his tail and two front flippers. He is highly detailed and a light amber yellow color with applied green eyes. He is very heavy, stands 6-1/2" tall, and measures a whopping 15" from tail to mouth, which must originally have been corked. Definitely the big one that didn’t get away! Actually, we caught two of these rare beauties, and both are in perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or scratches. Price is for each. (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.

Vintage Pyrex apothecary bottle #1

This is a neat old Pyrex clear glass apothecary bottle that you might have seen in a drug store in days long past. Two mold lines are clearly visible from mouth to bottom. Stands 9" high when stoppered, with diameters of 1-5/8" at the mouth and 4" at widest point and bottom. Stopper sides and bottom are frosted, as is the interior neck of the bottle. Bottom is marked “Pyrex”, “Reg US Pat Off”, “Made in USA”, and “B-8". Shoulder is marked with two little designs that look like a T with three cross hatches on the stem, plus the number 29 and another number that may be a second 29. Stopper top is marked Pyrex with a $ above and 29 below. Very slight roughness at the bottom edge of the stopper and the inside mouth rim of the bottle. Otherwise perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or scratches, but several interesting characteristics. Bottle has some small air bubbles and two long vertical wavy lines, one of which extends to the middle of the bottom. I’m assuming these are manufacturer’s flaws because they can’t be felt and they’re certainly not cracks. What can be felt are two additional 2" long vertical lines, one of either side of the bottle. Based on their perfection and placement, I’m assuming they were made deliberately. This bottle’s mate is listed immediately below; separate listing because some of the markings are different from this one. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Vintage Pyrex apothecary bottle #2

This is the mate to the Pyrex apothecary bottle listed immediately above. It is the exact same size and dimensions, but some of the markings are different. This one has a “B-1" on the bottom instead of a “B-8". Its shoulder marking is missing the additional number below the 29. Its stopper top has a 7 above the “Pyrex” instead of a $. Similar very slight roughness at the bottom edge of the stopper and the inside mouth rim of the bottle, but otherwise near perfect condition with no nicks, chips, or scratches. Bottom has a long curved mark that’s either a manufacturer’s flaw or a hairline crack that doesn’t go through to the interior because this bottle holds liquid without leaking. Many tiny air bubbles in the glass. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

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.
