**ViNtaGe SELTZER BOTTLES** not tooooo SHaBBy!!!

Every so often I come across "ViNtaGe Seltzer Bottle Sightings" in magazines, and on some blogs...  My husband has a small "colorful collection" of them...  These bottles date around 1920 ~ 1950's...  I'll be bringing a "Clear Glass Seltzer Bottle" FOR SALE, to the Grayslake Show in January... It's inscription reads HIGHLAND  PARK, ILLINOIS!!!   Get there early for best shot at netting this FiNd!*!*!


Color... Condition... Rarity... Form...
All affect the price with bottles...


The sun was streaming in "just-right" when I snapped this picture yesterday...

  2. Very beautiful. My husband and I were able to acquire a dozen bottles in there original wooden crate on Vacation in Maryland.............we could not believe the enexpensive price.......to purchase them, it cost more to ship home then what we paid for them. We love them, they are in all different shades and the writtings on them are wonderful. Thanks for sharing your knowledge on them. HUGS MARY
