Antique Glass Bottles  From The Allaire Collection

The earliest glass bottles were produced in Egypt, Syria, Greece and Cyprus as early as 1500 BC using the core forming techniques. Around 50 BC, probably in Syria, the discovery of the blowpipe and the technique of glass blowing made the blown bottle possible. The following examples from the Allaire Collection of Glass illustrate various examples from 6 BC to 1850. To see all of the American glass bottles go to AMERICAN EARLY GLASS in The Allaire Collection.
