Photo Gallery > Antique Bottle Collecting

Antique bottles tell stories and Tony Zoppina entertained the guests at the Shipman Mansion tonight with many of those stories. Whether they were pharmaceutical, milk or beer bottles, Tony explained what collectors look for – the rarer colors, pontil marks, and scripts. Many of the bottles were from local companies and the audience enjoyed learning about the businesses of long ago. Not only does Tony find bottles by digging, he also for a couple of years held the distinction of having sold the highest price bottle (over $7,000) on EBay – a bottle he bought it for only $2. Now we’ll all be looking for that special bottle. Thank you Tony for a great lecture.
