Note the dates and you will be able to see how prices have moved over the years for those bottle types.

About Antique Bottle Collector Magazine

ABC magazine is a quarterly full-colour magazine of 40 + pages. Read about new finds, researched histories, show reports, digging news, bottles wanted and for sale. The aim is to encourage all those who have discovered the 'buzz' of hunting and digging out Edwardian, Victorian, and sometimes earlier bottle dumps. Some of which can be valuable, all of which are fascinating, intrinsically beautiful and important local social history artifacts.

Back issues of ABC Magazine are available from £1 each+post. Go to the Resources/Books section to see some of the more recent issues available.
