One to Watch: Old Valley

Amazingly enough, a rare and desirable picture glass has shown up on eBay twice within the space of a couple of months (see the Eleventh Day of Christmas for the other example).

It’s an Old Valley Whiskey glass, featuring three old gents and a bottle of — what else — Old Valley Whiskey. The example shown below was listed by eBay seller trsan-5934 with an opening bid of $15.75. As I write, the bidding stands at $38.00. The listing photos leave something to be desired – is that a crack in the rim at the 11 o’clock position? The seller describes the glass as “This shotglass is in awesome shape and it will look great in your collection!!” – maybe the artefact is a trick of the light, but it may be worth asking ahead of time.
