Locating a Replacement Stopper - Question
« on: June 18, 2014, 09:08:19 PM »
If this is the wrong spot for this kind of message, please let me know! I've looked around and this seems the best place on the forum. I am learning a ton from reading and looking.

I have a small Biot bottle (will attach picture) and am curious about finding an original stopper to replace the missing original. Is this the kind of thing I should just keep an eye out for on ebay and locally, or is there a secret resource known only to glass collectors? :-) If anyone has a correct stopper, I'd be open to buying it, too.

Get yourself a classical cork and you're as close to the original as you'll ever get. Or if you must, get one online from Biot directly. Tell 'em your cat is to blame and it was a present from your late wife or something.
