Rare Ca. 1875-85 Tall Pictorial Beer Bottle, Crystal Brewage Baltimore, Usa For Sale
Up for offers now with S and a low starting offer,is anotherof several lots of antique hand blown, blob, ceramic, or pontiled soda and beer bottles we are posting this week. This sale is forone bottle only. The other bottles shown in the group color and size comparison photos are currently being listed in separate sales, or will be on our sales table at the fast approaching Baltimore Antique Bottle Show and Sale per the attached flyer. This isthe highly anticipated, mega bottle event, that we always look forward to, and we hope to see you there.
This sale is for the 10 & 3/16" tall, "ladies leg" or export style lager beer bottle with applied double collard lip. It is nicely embossed on the front side in a custom mold " CRYSTAL BREWAGE / (within a double ringed oval representing a faux label, is a large pictorial of a carrier pigeon in flight. The pigeon istransporting a parcel on a cord around it's neck, which is embossed with the letters "CB". The bird flies above the embossed "TRADE MARK", and is surrounded by 16 embossed five pointed stars.) / BALTIMORE, MD. / U.S.A. ".
This is one of the more sought after and desirable, pre prohibition Baltimore, Marylandbrewery beer bottles for collectors. It is sought after not only for it'srarity, but for it's full list of unusual characteristics. Odd it is, that the embossing does not readily identify that the bottle contained beer produced at Jacob Seeger's West Baltimore Brewery, nor that the product was bottled by the Staten Island Bottling Company also located in Baltimore. This hadremainedunknown to local collectors for years, until a paper labelsurfaced that provided the information. Theapplied double collared lip is unique among Balto pre pro beers, and the bottle also represents the first occurance of the ladies leg form, and the color amber, to be recordedfrom a Baltimore brewery. The apparent desire or need to emboss "U.S.A." on the bottle is probably due to a business plan to sell this beer a long way away from the Baltimore market, and only one other Baltimore beer bottler, and no other Baltimore breweries ever bothered to emboss USA on their bottles. It is also interesting to know that of approximately 10 examples of this bottle to be found to date, I have only ever heard of one of them being dug in the Baltimore area, nearly all of them turning up in the gulf coast states from Florida to Texas, with this particular example being found in Louisiana. This example is in very nice uncleaned condition. It has some cloudiness or dullness in certain areas as seen in the photos, minimal ground wear, no cracks, and only a shallow 1/4" long chip on the upper edge of the drip ring as shown in the photos. There are several nice intact air bubbles in the glass, including the one that it looks like the pigeon is carrying with his feet.
