Looking For A Museum For Blown Animal/Figurative Liquor Bottles

Posting Number 2756   Date: 07/20/17     Return to Posting List

John Styler was looking for a museum recommendation for a liquor bottle collection. Gwen Stebbins responds:

Hi Alan,

The Museum of American Glass in West Virginia probably would be interested in the liquor bottle collection. The owner should call the museum.

Kristen Gribble

HI Alan,

I would like to suggest the New Bedford Museum of Glass as a possible "good fit" for the glass animal figure bottles mentioned in your Gazette.

We are working to develop an extensive permanent collection of glass animals covering all categories and periods, from ancient to contemporary. Represented so far are Baccarat, Lalique, Val St. Lambert, Waterford, Kosta Boda, Sabino, Daum, Heisey, Seguso, etc., etc. Oh yes, and also Steuben! You can see highlights of the collection on our Facebook group "Collecting Glass Animals at NBMOG," which you can visit by clicking this link

Earlier this year we displayed part of the collection at the Newton Free Library outside Boston, where it was very favorably received. Library Director of Programs Ellen Meyers wrote the following: "In my ten years of coordinating the displays for our Main Hall, which rotate on a monthly basis, this has been among the most popular! Every day countless families have stopped by to enjoy the colorful glass animals, take time to name them and generally appreciate the beauty and variety of pieces."

The figure bottles would compliment our growing collection very nicely, and would help us toward our goal of representing the wonderful genre of glass animal art and design on a grand scale.

All the best

David C-B Console Set

Twelve inch candlesticks, #686, go well with a twelve inch bowl, #2851. I purchased the candlesticks because they did not seem to be light enough for topaz. Perhaps they are Russian amber, which then gets us back to the discussion of what is amber, and what is topaz? If a lighter version of the candlesticks is also amber, then so is the bowl.
