"Antique 19th and early 20th century bottles have long attracted collectors, due to their beautiful shapes and colors, historical interest, and availability to anyone willing to do some sleuthing and some digging.

The rarest and most prized bottles include mouth-blown (as opposed to machine made) bottles from the 1800s, especially those in interesting shapes (e.g. figural bitters), with dire warnings (e.g. medicine or poison bottles) or other interesting embossings. Collectors often seek pontil marks and rare colors, and of course, condition is paramount.

There are in fact dozens of categories of collectible bottles, including milk bottles, soda bottles, beer bottles, flasks, ink bottles, perfume bottles, fruit (Mason) jars and Ball jars, liquor bottles, snuff bottles... the list goes on..." Antique Bottles in Collectors Weekly

Of all the categories of collectible bottles: milk bottles, soda bottles, beer bottles, flasks, ink bottles, perfume bottles, fruit (Mason) jars and Ball jars, liquor bottles, snuff bottles..., here's quite a collection of the soda bottles!

"The walls of the barn are lined with floor-to-ceiling shelving units filled with thousands historic soda pop bottles all shelved in alphabetical order. The Kilchermans have a collection of over 10,000 historic pop bottles that John claims is the largest collection in the world. He has more historic pop bottles than what is currently listed in the Guinness Book of World Records. Vintage signs and cans hang from the rafters giving the barn a historic feel."

Scents and Sensibility: Collecting Vintage Perfume Bottles in Antiq...

Great article on starting a collection and lots of info about the difference between commercial and decorative bottles.

For instance did you know that a record price for a perfume bottle at auction is something over $200,000? And those sample perfume bottles we got in the 60's can now bring $300 - $400???

1920's Czech Crystal Perfume Bottles

it may surprise you to learn that the record price for a perfume bottle at auction is something over $200,000 or that those little sample bottles we used to get for free at perfume counters in the ’60s can now bring as much as $300 or $400! - See more at: http://www.antiquetrader.com/antiques/collecting_perfume_bottles#st...

People collect two kinds of perfume bottles – decorative and commercial.

Decorative bottles include any bottles sold empty and meant to be filled with your choice of scent. Until about a hundred years ago, it was usual for a woman to bring her bottle to her favorite apothecary to be filled with her chosen fragrance.

Commercial bottles are any that were sold filled with scent and usually have the label of a perfume company. Since there are so many thousands of different perfume bottles, most collectors specialize in some subcategory. Specialize is my number one piece of advice!
