New Glass Bottle Help, Please :-)
« on: June 27, 2014, 07:16:15 PM »
Found this at a yard sale today and I think it is a Wheaton reproduction (you can't tell from the pictures, but there is a worn stamp of Wheaton NJ on the bottom of the bottle), but can't tell from what I've read if this bottle has any value beyond being my favorite color and looking good with the rest of my amethyst glass. The front reads Roger Bros Salem NJ 1850. There seems to be a polished/ground pontil and seam. It is 9.5 inches tall.

Any thoughts or suggestions? I feel like I'm not using the right search phrase in google.

Thanks!

Madrone

I popped "Roger Bros Salem NJ 1850" into Google and tons came up.  This seems to be useful:  http://www.wheatonclub.com/photogallery/colonialreproductionseries.html

Thank you! I think I read that one on my original search, but what confuses me is that it appears to be a reproduction that is actually collectible - am I reading that right? It seems contrary to other things I've read (obviously I'm new to this). Not complaining! Just looking for some guidance.

Thanks again.
