is largely devoted to post repeal glasses but it contains a number of useful links and ideas about displaying shots.
Shot Glasses for Sale:
Flea Markets and Bottle Shows:
markets can be an excellent source of pre-pro's at bargain
prices for those who have the patience to sift through other
offerings. Use Google
or other favorite search engine to locate markets in your area.
Federation of Historical Bottle Collectors also
maintains an online
calendar that lists dates and locations of bottle shows
around the country. Antique bottle dealers can be a useful
source of pre-pro shot glasses.|
Displays makes display cases for shot glasses at a very affordable
rate (I tried duplicating one and the materials alone cost me 50% of
their asking price). Their cases have a Plexiglas cover which is
essential for protecting pre-pro glasses from dust and spouses
who wish to remove it.
Many other displays and plans for making displays can be found through the
shotglass.org links page.
There are several good places to find used books on the web. These include:
we're talking shot-glass and pre-prohibition, there really
is only one museum and that's the Oscar Getz in Bardstown,
KY. If you have a chance, you should visit.
Although their display of shots is limited, there's plenty
to look at and lust over. For more information, see
the Getz page at www.whiskeymuseum.com
You can find more sites on brands used by the old companies and histories of the
various distillers on the Research Links page.
