Whiskey & Spirit Bottle Designs

Copyright 1999 Digger Odell Publications

 Across the country were thousands of small and large companies engaged in distilling alcohol.  They almost all sold their products in bottles.  For the collector, there are thousands of bottles to pursue in this category.

Post-Prohibition whiskeys were usually unmarked but the Four Roses and a few others covered their bottles with fanciful patterns.

Find below many different styles of whiskey and other spirits bottles.  The Design Patents below were registered with the United States Patent Office between 1892-1908.  While only a comparatively few bottle designs were registered during this period, thousands of names were registered as trademarks. Most disappeared into obscurity.  Click on a picture to see an enlarged photo.  Use your Browser's back button to return to this page.  The page and pictures take a while to load so please be patient.
