I've got a problem when it comes to glass bottles! They're always the hardest thing for me to sell. I suspect I'll eventually amass a collection of my own. This one is a great little 2.5 oz Ace polish bottle.

    That is a really nice bottle. With the spade on it, it shouldn't be too difficult to sell to a poker or playing cards enthusiast. I have a round brass padlock with a spade on each side that is valued more than similar padlocks simply because of the spade on each side.

    Fourteen years ago at a convention of Safe and Vault Technicians I attended, they had an auction of items that were donated to raise money for the association. Two donated items were antique bottles with a safe molded in the side. There was a smaller one, probably just a few ounces and a larger one that was probably six or eight ounces. They both went for what seemed to me a lot of money. I can't remember how much, but I seem to remember the larger one going for something between 70 and 100 dollars. If you ever find a bottle of Safecracker Stout from the Bank Street Brewing Company, I know a lot of guys who'd be interested. :)

    Anyway, that is a beautiful bottle. Thanks for sharing.

    Here is some info on your bottle maker:
    "Pierce Glass Company, St. Mary's, PA (1905-1912); Hamburg, NY (1912-1917); Port Allegany, PA (1917-c.1980s). This factory was acquired by Indianhead Container Corporation (later merged into Ball-InCon) and is now a Saint-Gobain Containers glass plant."
