Default Wormser Brothers Western Flask

Not a recent find but I found it at one of the places I want to go detect. Mine is vertically embossed and similar to one shown. http://www.westernbitters.com/2018/0...thers.html?m=1

I keep getting an error message when I try and create an album. The album name gets created but the uploads fail.

The picture might be too big. You should be able to post it right in the thread.

Try putting the picture into "paint" and then adjust the size of it there to get the size down.

That's very similar to the Roback's Bitters and those are like $500. Barrel style bitters.

Wow thatís a great bottle. I donít know anything about them specifically but their bottles are all high dollar.

Thatís a home run. Would love to see more pictures.

This thread saved some of my old bottles. I moved last year and had to go grab the bottle out of a box stored in the rafters in my garage. One of my boxes of bottles was almost 1/3 the way off the storage shelf. I wouldnít have known without getting this bottle out to take the picture. I need a display case.

Take some bottles out and take some pictures. I can't speak for anyone else, but I love looking at pictures of what people have/find.

And that one definitely needs to be displayed.

Itís about a 3 out of 5. Since it laid exposed to the elements for 150 years it has some weathering on it. Thought it was a Budweiser bottle from a distance.

It's not in any of my bottle price guides so that's a good sign that it's not common.

Iíve been offered $200 for it. In pristine shape they go for $450. Or so Iíve been told. When the snow melts Iím going to head back to where I found this and bring my detector. There were some flattened out areas where tool shacks sat that Iím interested in checking out.

Yes, had that been the barrel bottle you'd be looking at much more $$, but still, that's one nice bottle in a nice color. Definately go back there and scour it good. Maybe get a probe and poke around for more dumps. There's a lot of good bottles from that period.
