  Lot of (2), Early ‘Hock’ Wine Bottles, Germany, 1810 – 1830. Medium-to-deep yellowish ‘old amber’, and medium-to-deep pinkish puce coloration, both are ‘hock wine’ form, dip mold, sheared mouth with applied band collars – blowpipe pontil scarred bases, ht. 12 5/8” and 13 ¼” respectively; (both with just a bit of minor exterior wear, light interior residue, otherwise perfect). Note; the amber example has vertical ribbing through the neck, as well as on the applied band collar.  
5 $ 210
 Mammoth size, Early Wine Bottle, France, or possibly Belgium, 1780 – 1800. Medium-to-deep yellowish olive amber, dip mold, sheared mouth with applied ring – heavy disc-type pontil scar, ht. 22 1/8”, virtually perfect; (a slight trace of wear, and a bit of roughness on the edge of the lip, almost certainly in-manufacture). See VdB Supplement, p.81, plate 436,“Wine Bottles of Historical Interest”. A very impressive, giant, early blown wine. Per Van den Bossche, used for Burgundy, Champagne, and Bordeaux wines.  
8 $ 140
  Early, Apothecary Storage Bottle or Carboy, England, 1760 – 1780. Deep olive green, freeblown, compressed globular body with a sheared, tooled, funnel-type neck – heavy disc pontil scar, ht. 11”; (the bottle is virtually attic mint, however there is some dried content residue in the base, and a light oily film of residue on the interior). VdB, plate 59. A great looking early storage bottle, scarce and desirable form, outstanding condition.  
18 $ 700
 Apothecary Storage Bottle, “TR. CALUMB.” (Gold painted label with red trim and black lettering), England, 1800 – 1820. Medium-to-deep yellowish olive, freeblown or possibly dip mold, cylindrical, sheared mouth with applied ring collar – heavy disc-type pontil scar, ht. 14”; (a couple of areas of faint light dullness, and a little scattered minor wear including a number of shallow open surface bubbles, otherwise excellent). VdB, plate 60. A very crude example, nice bubbly glass, overall excellent condition.  
22 $ 475
  Large Storage Bottle or Demijohn, Continental, probably Austrian, 1820- 1850. Aquamarine, blown in a dip mold for form, octagonal with drawn-up shoulders, conical neck flaring to a sheared and outward flared mouth – blowpipe pontil scar, ht. 13 7/8”, perfect. VdB, plate 212, #4. A delicate, thin-walled, eye-appealing, demijohn. Octagonal bottles are generally quite scarce, and at almost 14”, this one is impressive and very scarce.  
7 $ 180
 Early, Freeblown Demijohn or Globular Storage Bottle, Continental, probably North Germany, 1770 – 1800. Bright, medium, yellow green, globular form with a short neck, sheared mouth with applied ring collar – sand type pontil scar, ht. 10”, virtually perfect; (only the faintest trace of light wear, otherwise pristine). A very pretty ‘see-through’ color, excellent clarity, nice even tone from the collar to the base, fantastic condition.  
11 $ 180
 Early, Freeblown Demijohn or Globular Storage Bottle, Continental, probably Germany, 1770 – 1800. Clear medium olive shading to a deep olive through the shoulders and neck, globular form with a short neck, sheared mouth with applied ring collar – heavy disc type pontil scar, ht. 11”; (some interior content residue or light haze in the shoulders, some of which may wash out; a little minor usage wear including a 1/8” body flake, otherwise excellent). A great looking early globular bottle.
10 $ 180
 Large, Freeblown Demijohn, Continental, French Alsace region, 1840 – 1850. Bright amber shading to a deep orange-amber in the shoulders and neck, globular form, short neck, rough sheared mouth with applied flat band collar with vertical ribbing – smooth domed base, ht. 17 5/8”, near mint; (some light-to-moderate interior content residue, and a little minor light exterior dullness, not terribly distracting, otherwise perfect). Hard to find in this large size. Virtually identical to VdB, plate 154, #1.

A very impressive, larger than most, globular Demijohn.
12 $ 375
  Freeblown Demijohn, Continental, probably Germany, Black Forest Region, 1830 – 1850. Medium-to-deep olive amber, cylindrical, slightly corseted body with funnel-type neck, sheared, tooled, likely applied ring-type collar – concave base with blowpipe pontil scar, ht. 13 3/8”, virtually perfect; (just a very slight trace of light wear). Nice rich color, attractive form, and loaded small bubbles throughout the body.  
19 $ 700
  Demijohn, probably England, 1790 – 1810. Medium-to-deep yellowish olive with an amber tone, cylindrical, dip mold, applied string rim with short taper – domed base with large sand type pontil scar, ht. 14 7/8”; (some scattered minor usage wear, and a ¾” x 1/8” open bubble at heal of base, otherwise virtually perfect). A very heavy-in-weight, crude, demijohn, overall excellent condition. Provenance: Ex. Mark Nightingale collection.  
4 $ 120
  Demijohn, America, 1855 – 1870. Light-to-medium cornflower blue coloration, cylindrical, dip mold, applied sloping collar – large iron pontil scar, ht. 19”, near mint; (a little typical, light exterior wear, otherwise attic mint). A delicate, but very pretty color, and at 19”, is taller than most. A great example to add to your color run. In addition, fantastic condition, and with a large pontil scarred base!
