Top of the Fridge

Top of the FridgeHere are two vintage whiskey bottles from my grandfather that now have a place of honor on top of our fridge. 

These are James Beam Distilling Company bottles made by Genuine Regal China. They made a ton of them from about 1960-1980 (drink that whiskey, America!), but because of the many different types of bottles, they are still highly collectible. And if you want to start your own collection, there is no better time than now.  Since they overproduced a lot of these bottles, prices have actually gone DOWN over the years, and they are priced anywhere from about $10-20 a bottle. You can usually find them at the usual suspects, including Ebay.

The dog bottle is cute, but I love the swordfish.  It matches my pink and blue kitchen exactly!

    Great whiskey bottles! My husband really wanted some from his Grams house (in Ionia) after she passed away, unfortunately they all disappeared to other parts of the family. 😦
