    A surprise in the basement. Sorting through my dad's things I found some items from a family owned hotel in the 1930's (my great-grand somethings). Low and behold there was an old bottle of "booze". It does not have a box, but appears unopened. The label on the front reads "GRANDE FINE CHAMPAGNE, LOUIS XIII BRAND, Rarest Reserve, Distillied and Bottled by E. REMY MARTIN & Co Cognac France". the tax stamp is mostly missing but does read 4/5 QUART. The decanter cap does have a small chip in it but doesn't impact the flowery thing on top.

      I think I had a shot of this 20 years ago at a hotel bar and it was like $50 a shot! I didn't pay of course. Go to a "nice" liquor store or a big hotel bar and ask them.

      Yoy may be interested to know that Baccarat made some glass for Remy Martin, i think you may have struck lucky

      @susan, I followed your link and all I can say is "WOW" daddy was good to him/her looks like a very nice find with a buyer in place !

      There is no indication on the bottle that it is Baccarat. No "glassmaker" mentioned anywhere on the bottle. I have no idea how old it is. I wish I did.

      In Utah that sells new for about $1400.00 and I heard the bottle was a Tiffany design and worth $700.00 empty. (I used to work in a liquor store)

      Amazingly lucky find. That looks to me like it's probably 1930s or earlier (when comparing it to the photos at the finestandrarest.com link above). I'm so glad you didn't throw it away! Please post an update if you're able to date it more exactly.
