This is my favorite piece that I own. I am a Lover and collector of uranium and vaseline glass. This French Seltzer Bottle is in great shape for its age. It has no chips or cracks, just some minor scratches on the bottom. I done a little research on it and from the best I can tell the word "Quessy" is actually a town in France, and I'm pretty sure that A. Barre was the person this bottle was made for. The Telephone number stated on the bottle says 22 so I assume this was for a place of business, most likely a bar. I actually recently found this style of bottle in one of my books. I found it on page 123 in " Standard Encyclopaedia of Pressed Glass 5th edition by Bill Edwards and Mike Carwile." It is simply listed as a French Seltzer Bottle and the book value in this book is $250.00. It also says these bottles were made in the 1920's and made to hold Vichy water and were an important part of the bar scene in that time. I'm wondering if the value of this bottle has increased any since this book was made in 2007.. I just wanted to share this with everyone and I plan to show more of my unique finds for everyone to see.
Thanks for Looking at my post!
