    I am getting pictures of all my granddads decanters. They came in such unique shapes. He was a member of so many bottle clubs back in the 1970s. He collected every one he could get his hands on before he died. I am putting together a scrapbook of them all for my mom.

      These are great!

      Thanks Newfld! This is just a piece of his 400 bottle collect that I have to sort thur, put on ebay or donate. Its a daunting task! I wish I could find room to keep some but live in a small house with no extra room.

      They are such fun and so well designed and made! I understand it would be tiring and even a bit of a load having to sort through them, so I hope you are really enjoying each one as a great object!

      The New Hampshire, Old Man of the Mountain should have increased value because the entire granite face came tumbling down a few years ago. Nice collection he had.

      racer4four - I am making my mom a scrapbook of all the stuff of his that we are selling/donating. The problem is he collected EVERYTHING he could get his hands on but it is interesting. I would love to be able to keep more of his collection but I would need a much bigger house. 900 square feet does not cut for antiques!

      fhrjr2 - I had no idea that the face fell off! I guess I need to get out more. None of them are really worth anything. Most of these bottles sell under $20 so we have been donating them. Our donation center is full now and they are not accepting anymore of the decanters.

      Is this one marked Ezra Brooks on the bottom?

      Those are selling online from $90 to $139. After the Old Man tumbled items with his image went way up in price. Heck even a roll of tokens went from $5 to $20, Zippo with his image went well over $200. It just went crazy price wise when he fell.

      fhrjr2 - They are listed that high but not selling. The last time one sold was for 21.50 I believe.
