Hi, I just purchased this at a thrift store for .49 cents. Also, what do all the marks mean on the base, like how do you read it. Do you put these kind of marks at all in the gallery?
I think it might be dominion glass with the D in the triangle, but not sure, and can anyone tell the age of this at all....
That doesn’t mean it’s always easy, and figuring out the exact age can be a real hassle, but there are 11 basic clues and resources I use when trying to determine how old a dusty bottle of whiskey is.
Below is a run through of each along with some additional resources at the end.
You know that big block of text on the back of your whiskey that tells you not to operate machinery or be pregnant while drinking?
If it’s not there then your bottle is likely from before 1989 when the Surgeon General’s warning became mandatory.
How has that product’s marketing and appearance changed over time? (Many folks will, for example, recall when Pepsi changed its look in very recent history, perhaps to capitalize on Mr.
Obama’s campaign iconography coming off his first inauguration or perhaps as a simple coincidence.) Branding and rebranding may teach us something about how archaeologists date their finds in the field.
I have a miniature bottle of O'Darby Irish Cream Liqueur from the 1980's.
Think over your own lifetime and select a product that has been around at least as long as you.
These are the most watched antique bottle auctions in the pre-1900 era category.
