Before bigshipsalvage.com was ever started, our owner was a very active in collecting antique bottles. Antique bottles can become a very interesting hobby that can be enjoyed on a budget, or can become a high dollar investment. Our personal bottle collection started one day while I was out walking my dog and stumbled into the remains of an old farm dump in Northern Indiana. This dump was on a dirt hill side that due to soil erosion had become exposed. I started going to this hill side to digging old bottle in my spare time. After finding a few five gallon buckets of old bottle, I located a man that had been collecting bottle for years. I learned that some of my bottle were worth nothing, and some were worth a few bucks, but all were interesting treasures. Some 25 years later, I have to say my collection is larger than most of you would believe. After starting my bottle collection in Indiana, a change in my employment landed us in Sarasota, Florida. This was all about the time this eBay was getting off the ground. In short, I started selling my dug bottles and buying bottle that were more rare. One thing lead to another, and I joined a bottle collectors club in the local area. Yes, bottle collectors have clubs and they get together and share their newly acquired treasures.

We have started this new category for antique bottles because many people who collect nautical items are also interested in antique bottles. Not all of my bottles will be shipwreck bottles, but you can tell the story however you want once you buy them.

    This is a 10 3/4 inch tall 1890’s Boll & Dunlop Rotterdam Holland Case Gin Bottle. The color is a dark green, but in the bottle collecting world this is considered a black glass bottle. Based on the way the top was applied to this bottle, I would say it is easily over 100 years old. Nice embossing on two sides.  Bottle has some minor case wear, but no chips or cracks. The wide shoulders of this bottle are over 4 inches wide, while the sides near the bottom are just over 3 inches wide.
