The hundreds of old and antique bottles, books, etc. listed below constitute part of a collection assembled over more than 47 years.  Rarity terms have largely been avoided - the prices quoted (in Australian $'s) generally indicate rarity and desirability.  See also the "GIPPSLAND COLLECTABLES" shop details above!

Most bottles, jars, books, etc. listed are "one only", but duplicates in similar condition exist for a small number - when such an item is sold, the item may not display a "SOLD" sign.  Items can be reserved for a period of time, by arrangement, to enable payment - such items will display a "Reserved" sign .  Every endeavour has been made to carefully describe each item so that the purchaser has a very clear and accurate idea of condition.  If unsure, you can request a digital picture of the item.  The intention is  that you be spared unpleasant surprises.  In the unlikely event that the condition of an item has not been accurately described, a purchaser may return the item in "as sent" condition, properly packed, for refund of item cost.  

You are welcome to send me your "Wants" list, in case I can help you.  Families whose forebears used branded bottles, are also welcome to check with me, in case I am able to help locate bottles for you.

Experience at packaging for both Australian and overseas delivery ensures that you can order in full confidence that the item/s will be adequately and securely, yet economically packed.  Postage is expensive so this will ensure that you are only paying the minimum amount necessary for safe delivery to you.  You will never be charged for more than actual postage costs, unless you require registered postage or insurance, in which case actual costs for such service, will apply.

Happy collecting,
