My dad has collected, among many other things, automotive related decanters.
Some are old ceramic race cars, others are more recent Jim Beam Model "A" Fords, He has Elvis music box bottles, and Henry Ford bottles. I wouldn't be comfortable guessing how many he has at this point.
The purpose of my message is to try to get the word out that these bottles, and all of his other stuff, are going to be auctioned in March 2007.
The auction is going to be near Cincinnati Ohio. Here is a link to the auctioneers web site. http://www.hiltonauctioneer.com/act01.html
These pictures are kind of a preview of some of what he has. There is one picture of some of the decanters. They are in beautiful, glass front wooden cabinets that are also going to be auctioned.
If you have people in your membership around the Midwest that may be interested please spread the word. If anyone is very interested, I can try to get more/better pictures of the bottles. He also has a pretty big assortment of Avon car bottles.
Thanks very much for your time feel free to publicize and spread this information to anyone you think may be interested.
Thanks, Dan Cradler
