Antique Sealed Bottle Books

Just about to hit the bookshelves is the new three volume book Antique Sealed Bottles 1640-1900 and the families who owned them by David Burton. Published by Antique collectors club ISBN: 978-1-85149-755-3.  This has been long awaited  in early glass collecting circles.

Volume 1 is concerned with History and evolution.

Volume II Dated and undated sealed bottles.

Volume III Crests and coats of arms.

Below is a sneak preview of the quality of the on offer. I had a good look at Kidlington show at a pre-print run copy. The set comes in a nice case.

RRP is £250 but considering the quality of the publication well worth the money if you can afford it. At the moment BBR are offering special hard to beat pre-print offer discount buy so hurry.


It is set to complement and bring up to date the earlier publications  By Sheelah Ruggles-Brise (County Life 1949), Rodger Dumbrells (1973) and Willy Van den Bossche (2003) all accepted as standard references.
