Description Shipping Notes

Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry.


I believe this book may be an indispensable reference to those who specialize in early hand blown glass bottles. At a glance, it contains hundreds and hundreds of close up photographs of these bottles. Most manufacturer entries include the known colors, a description of the shape (e.g. 8 panels, 81/2 x 3-1/2 inches) the method of manufacture, the estimated date, country of origin (if different from the U.S.) and much more.

Some of the bottles shown include:

  • Honey
  • Tea
  • Coffee
  • Maple Syrup
  • Catsup... or Ketchup, if you prefer
  • Pickles
  • Spices
  • Mustard
  • Vinegar
  • Fruit
  • Extracts (Vanilla, etc.)
  • Jelly
  • and much more.

    The back section also includes copies of the original patents for the bottles, along with original patent drawings, patent date, etc.

    --- John Kincaid, Collector Bookstore


    KETCHUP PICKLES SAUCES 19th Century Food in Glass covers the spectrum of the early food industry in relationship to the glass containers marked with a company or trade name. Research provided is primarily for the antique bottle collector but should also prove of great interest to the food industry, as well as historians of this era. The introduction sets the pace, giving collector guidelines, rarities and values. Statistical information is provided where ever possible to aid the collector in dating the specific time period his collectable might have been made.

    As much historical information was included to be significant to the collector of said memorabilia. Research delves into patents, trademarks, personal information on the founders, dates of company business activity, mergers and continued operations under new titles, relative glasshouse information, background of patents and trademarks effect on this industry. All of this put together weaves the story of how the pioneer struggling for his existence brought about this industry.

    From the first 'quick' food packaging of fresh ground spices prepared in 1821 in Boston thru the modernization that takes place at the turn of the century. How the small companies with a good product and wise business sense survived the 'seasonal' problems of this industry to become the corporate 'giants' of today.
