Blue Pickle Bottle Brings $16,200July 25, 2012

The Cathedral pickle bottle sold last April (see the eBay listing here), and Peachridge Glass reported on it back then, with some nice big pix, of course.

Ralph Finch has written a long chatty article about the bottle, it's exciting auction journey, and the happy new owner. The article is published in the August 2012 Maine Antiques Digest.

PS - I was looking at google images to find pix for this post, and saw this chalkboard image. Sigh... Sadly, according to urbandictionary.com, 'blue pickle' is a naughty slang term, so be careful where you talk about this! What's this world coming to? Yikes!
