    Given to us by Mother. She said was a French Liquor Corday bottle and had appraised in 1960. No official docs, no markings on glass. Can anyone give us more detail about this bottle?

      I also have one of these bottles that I bought at a garage sale for $5. I have been trying to find out any information about it. I have spent hours on bottle identification sites and all I can seem to gather is that it may be from the late 1800's because of where the seam lies. Don't know a whole lot about this stuff so am just trying to gather what I can from different sites but am also interested in the value of this bottle.

      I bought a bottle like this 15 years ago at a shop and paid 15 dollars for it. It has a glass top would love to know how much its worth.

      Hello, I have two bottles like this, one emerald green like the one pictured and one clear. Any news on its history and/or value?
    6. rschultz1960, 7 years ago
      No new info has been provided todate. Seems several folks have owned these, but no one has any idea of any type of value. Thanks for all the posts. Maybe we will eventually come across someone who has the info.

      My parents have this piece with a sticker tag on it and its labeled "cagco Made In Italy " with part of the tag missing. Now after a little research we found out that its Ucagco don't know much other then that. Here are a few links to pics... http://imageshack.us/a/img545/9742/dsc03986i.jpg

      I also have one of the green bottles, it is/was one of my fathers most prized possessions. Out of all of the things of the past, this one that I have held closely. the name is Gardiano, or something like that, used to have info on my computer but that hard drive crashed. He got it in the late 50's early 60's
    9. BottlefanAJO BottlefanAJO, 6 years ago
      This may be the name as well >> Gardiano
    10. BottlefanAJO BottlefanAJO, 6 years ago
      They were hand blown into the molds from what I have remembered
    11. BottlefanAJO BottlefanAJO, 6 years ago
      Garnier is the name of the glass manufacturer, the name of the item eludes me, it's not named that which this post asserts
    12. BottlefanAJO BottlefanAJO, 6 years ago
      He was known for blowing glass into molds

      The name of the item would no doubt be in French, as opposed to English
    16. BottlefanAJO BottlefanAJO, 6 years ago
      I had an empty of this item :(

      Garnier made a ton of these collectible novelty decanters throughout the 20th century. Perhaps someone who is more familiar with that area of collecting can comment, but my suspicion is that your bottle is worth maybe $50.
    18. BottlefanAJO BottlefanAJO, 6 years ago
      That a reply to the persons post
    19. BottlefanAJO BottlefanAJO, 6 years ago
      I have posted a request on a page that may help, sent a picture and all, they seem to know the Garnier stuff, will advise.

      An Italian gentleman has one up for sale on ebay right now (Oct. 15, 2017), but his is clear glass.

      The asking price on eBay is $190 + $23.99 S&H. The seller states that the bottle is circa 1890.

      Is this bottle really valued at that high a price? What is the comparison in value? Is green worth more than clear or vice-versa?
    21. tangledhangers9 tangledhangers9, 2 years ago
      Update to previous post: Oct.15, 2017 and a clear glass Hand Holding Dagger bottle (listed at 15" tall, but it's probably 14.5")---it fine condition--- just sold for $20 + $17.00 S&H.
