Bottles and Bottle Collecting Paperback
Part of the Shire Library series
While the prices of most antiques have soared in recent decades, rising well beyond the price-range of the average person, bottles have remained comparatively inexpensive.
In Victorian times, our forebears packed everything from tea to hair-restorer in glass bottles that were discarded with general household refuse - with the result that, in rubbish dumps all over Britain, these bottles are waiting to be dug up, each non-machine-made bottle a collector's item that affords the collector a rare opportunity to unearth and restore their own collection.
This book describes the development of bottles of all sorts and illustrates over two hundred examples.
