Repro Alert

Here are some recent additions to the reproduction arena that collectors should be aware. For more info on reproduction bottles, see www.antiquebottles.com/repro

The Harden Fire Grenades have repros that come in green, turquoise, and amber. You can tell they are a repro from the embossed star on the base. The originals do not have a star on the base. The repros still make a attractive inexpensive set. Thanks to eBay sell firegrenades for this info.

This amber quart MASON'S / NOV 30, 1858 with ground lip and Maltese star on the back sold on eBay for $15 by rhondab96, who was good enough to identify it as a repro to prospective bidders. What was confusing here was that the lip was ground like an original, since most repro jars have smooth lips. But the "kicker" to identifying this one as a repro is that the Maltese star is on the back, which only occurs with the repros. The original always has the star on the front.

Here's a convincing repro of the USA HOSP DEPT bottle. The repro has a pontil base, while the original has a smooth base. And the repro has no periods in "USA"; the original has "U.S.A.".

Marty Sorenson is selling these beautiful stained insulators on eBay under his seller ID mnsorenson. They are typically inexpensive, and make a nice color splash to any collection. Marty is very good about being up front that the insulators have been stained. The problem is that some unscrupulous dealer may then try to resale them as original to an unsuspecting collector. Most insulator collectors are wise to the staining process, but it is also happening more with bottles, so buyer beware. Stained glass is typically obvious when you see it up close in person because the color will be uneven and have drip lines. And the stained color can be scratched with a knife, which will not hurt the glass. When bidding online and you are unsure about the color, be sure to ask the seller "before" the auction ends. And as always, never buy from sellers with extensive negative feedback. See info below from Marty.

This blue stoneware KELLY'S CABIN BITTERS is one of the rarer repro's. This example sold on eBay for $154 by ashhead.

Marty Sorenson, who sells the stained insulators shown above, provided this info: In the last year I became interested in collecting, buying and selling insulators. The history, the colors, the shapes are fascinating. I've met many interesting people in my search and have made some special friends in the insulator collecting world.

Many of the insulators I coveted for my collection are currently financially beyond my reach. The bold colors would have added a great touch to my collection, so I decided to try staining some of the less expensive, less valuable insulators to add a touch of color to my collection. I was pleased with the results, as were friends of mine who also collect insulators, and began offering these stained ones to other collectors as well.

It is very important to me that anyone who purchases a stained insulator from me be clear that it is stained and that it is not the original color. My honesty and integrity is on the line and I agree with other collectors who feel that purchasing a stained insulator being marketed as the original color makes them a victim of fraud.

Burlington NC Swap Meet Dec 13, 2003

The Southeast Bottle Club hosted a Swap Meet December 13th at Granddaddy's Antique Mall in Burlington, NC. John Patterson put on a great presentation on his NC milk bottle collection, demonstrating just how passionate he is about collecting and sharing his knowledge (and great stories) with others. Jack Murdock was the big winner in the raffle, taking away two of the best bottles: a BENNETT WHISKEY from MARION, N.C. and a straight-side Coca-Cola from Durham, NC. A few people brought bottles in for sale and sales were brisk.

Below are some pictures from the show. To see all the pictures taken, click here.
