This over-sized novelty bottle is a strong ruby color with narrow panels in the neck and a modified snail or scroll pattern mold-blown in the square body. The cork stopper adds an extra funkiness. The maker is unknown, but the best guess is the Empoli area of Italy, perhaps the Empoli company. Looking for someone with a sense of whimsy. Best guess on date of origin is 1960s.

Condition: is very good. There's a bit of cork missing on the corner, which could be post-production or the nature of the cork. As happens with ruby, there's some burn-out in the color around parts of the body, a blackening of the color. Of course, all our sales are fully guaranteed.

Height of the bottle itself is 16", and with the stopper, it's an eye-catching 20" tall.". Body is about 7" per side.

Price: $75 plus shipping/insurance based on location

Buying, Paying, and Such Things

You may notice that we don't have a checkout where you can just click for your goodies without so much as saying hello. Well, we want people to say hello, ask questions, even hope for a better deal. Long ago, I told stories for 7 hours (free refills on coffee), so "impersonal" just isn't my style. Click on one of those "E-mail" buttons. I can't handle as much coffee as I used to, so the stories will be fewer.

These days, Paypal is about the easiest payment method around, but we still take checks, even cash. No Monopoly money, nothing printed up in your basement, no chickens, etc., but otherwise we're fairly flexible. If we can put it in the bank without anyone getting in a tizzy, we'll probably take it.

Please take time to stroll through the site. Sorry we can't offer you a cup of coffee or tea while you're looking, but maybe you can take care of that yourself. Just don't spill it on the keyboard. And if you run into any questions along the way, there should be an e-mail link on every page, so just click and ask.

Hope you'll enjoy our "sing the body eclectic" approach (with apologies to Walt Whitman). As always, proceeds go to support our creditors, my spouse, our cats, my auction addiction, and the plumbing project that never ends.

What's "Gin-For"? Strictly medicinal purposes.
