There are three 19th century antique bottles sitting on the window sill on top of an old Singer Sewing Machine cabinet drawer. I’ve had them forever, never really thought about selling any of them until I started to do a little research and started asking around about them.
One of them, the teal Gargling Oil bottle made in Lockport New York, is rather common. This one I have listed in my shop on Artfire ~ PattyAnn’s Vintage and Other Cool Stuff.
The other two are not so common and would make a fine addition to someone’s antique bottle collection. They are not currently listed for sale but I have gotten a few offers. Interested? Make me an offer I can’t refuse – Contact Me Here
