Welcome to the Paul Van Vactor shot-glass collection!

Paul is best known as a shot-glass and bottle dealer, but he is also an avid collector of pre-Prohibition glass.  He focuses primarily on rare shots from his home state of Kentucky, but over the decades he has also acquired an enviable set of enamel and label-under glasses.  Many of these glasses can be viewed here.

If you are interested in having your own collection showcased here at, please drop a line to!

  Paul is one of the most reliable sources of pre-pro glasses either via eBay (his seller id is "stilz") or at antique bottle shows, as shown in the photo above (Baltimore, 2007).
