|Bottles in Carnival Glass|
|Below are many of the bottles found in Carnival Glass. Some are seen fairly regularly, others are probably one-of-a-kind.
||Sheaffers Skrip Ink Container
Back in the days when folks used ink pens rather than ball-point pens, you usually bought ink in bottles, which came in various sizes. Sheaffers Skrip was a well-known brand. This marigold example sold at the 2018 Mid-Atlantic Jamboree by Tom Burns. It brought $150.
|Bear and dog candy containers. The white bear bottle is from the collection of Carl and Eunice Booker; the dog bottle was photographed while in the collection of the late John Britt. The lettering molded into the sides says, "Sugar, Starch, Corn Syrup."
In 2015, a marigold sitting dog candy container sold for $45. In 2017, another in marigold sold for $205.
|Barrel and shoe flasks|
The barrel flask sold for $300 in 1994; the white shoe, with a big toe sticking out, brought $165 in 1994.
|Jackman and Golden Wedding whiskey bottles|
These are the two better known whiskey bottles. This Jackman bottles sold for $40 in 1999; two more for less than $15 in 2000. For Golden Wedding prices, click here.
These two Continental bottles are each a little different, presumably containing different wines.

|New England Wine Co. bottles.
Here are two appropriately designed "barrel cask" wine bottles with quite nice iridescence. Greg Dilian found the American Blackberry Wine bottle back in the '90s. After going through Hartung's books, page by page, he finally found it listed as "Peach Wine Bottle" in Book Six. He subsequently found the distinctive bottle, sans label, identified as "Boston Wine Bottle" in Sherman Hand's Book Three. Thus far, Peach and Blackberry are the only flavors that have surfaced.
