One more step towards a complete collection.......

A few weeks ago, a Michter's collector contacted me and asked if I had any interest in his collection. He was moving, and didn't want to have to take all of his decanters with him. When he told me what he had, I had to buy some of it. I wish I could have bought the whole collection, but since I like to pay what is fair, it didn't leave me quite enough in the budget to buy the whole thing. So I bought what I needed to fill the gaps in my collection. In the photo you see everything I purchased from him-

-Michter's 1.75L glass bottle lamp
-Michter's apron
-Michter's napkins
-Michter's information books
-1.75L glass bottle
-3 empty 750ML glass bottles (One has a gold Christmas package box with it)
-750ML glass 101 bottle with Christmas box
-1 Liter glass bottle
-2 200ML glass bottles (One empty, one full)
-375ML glass bottle
-101 proof "Tall jug" decanter
-Cobalt blue Quarter Whiskey bottle

A big thank you to Tom for these great pieces!

If you would be interested in purchasing some of Tom's other pieces (He's got lots more good stuff!!), contact me privately and I will send you his email address. Tom is a great guy and wants to see his stuff go to good homes where they will be appreciated!

As a second part of this note- I am proud to announce that my Michter's collection will soon become part of a distillery's museum. I will be involved with this distillery and the creation of the museum as well. More information coming soon! Stay tuned!

  1. Wow...a cobalt blue quarter whiskey bottle? Nice! I'd be potentially interested in some of whatever's left, and you have my address...

    On my last visit to the distillery (November 1989) I bought a 200 ml flask and a 1.75 L jug, their smallest and largest containers.

    Anything else full?
