One of our readers from Ohio, USA has this Martell Cordon Bleu Cognac to offer.

The Reader writes “This bottle was purchased recently at an Auction in Ohio, USA. It would appear to have been stored with the bottle laying in such a manner as to keep the cork moist. The bottle is a Baccarat Decanter, but does have some minor damage around the rim on one side, but other than that the bottle is in great condition! The stopper is in excellent condition. The box shows some wear, but is in fair condition.
We are glass collectors and actually purchased the box for the decanter when we saw it was Baccarat. When we got home and realized that the value of the contents of the entire set was far in excess of just the decanter we decided to see if someone could give the entire set a loving home!”

(If you also have a Cognac bottle you would like to sell, or you need information about age or value – send us photos and information, just submit: Use this form – but please be aware: if you don’t follow the steps precisely, we will not publish your bottle.)

The label reads: Blue tag wrapped / attached to the Decanter: J&F Martell
CORDON BLEU

Cognac

Produce of FRANCE

That was on the front of the tag.

The back of the tag reads:

4/5 QUART 80 PROOF

Sole Distributors for the U.S.A.
THE JOS. GARNEAU Co.
NEW YORK, N.Y.

The bottom of the Decanter is marked:
BACCARAT
FRANCE

The decanter is stored in a Blue Velvet box with a gold liner that holds the decanter and the stopper separately. Their are two golden doves/birds on the top of the box.

A tag that would appear to have been attached to the box is also in the box, but no longer attached. It has some thickness to it with what appears to be a single dove with a shield and a TT within the shield.

Tax labels, revenue, signs or similar: There are NO seals or revenue documents. The top/seal for the bottle is obviously missing, but the cork is intact and has no signs of any tampering.

    Either the cork is not original or the top of it has been broken off. This bottle should have a cork with an integral top cap and a seal as on the similar bottle listed below.
    In this condition the bottle is unsealed and the content could be anything. It is basically worthless. I would suggest you drink it if you are convinced it is Cordon Bleu, no collector will buy it.

    I submitted a similar bottle yesterday but I must have messed up with the pictures or something else, as it wasn’t published …. Anyway mine has a sealed cork and everything looks fine. It’s a Cordon bleu Martell in a Baccarat bottle coming in a large blue case, probably from the ’80 or even older. Pictures and further descriptions available to serious buyers. But it’s in Italy….Anyone interested?

    It is unfortunate that your bottle has damage to the cork and the glass. Im sure you are disappointed the value is reduced significantly. You must have hoped to sell for what is considered the current market value. I am glass decanter collector however I prefer ones that have notable cognacs inside. Im willing gamble and offer you $300 and risk the cognac is truly Martell. I hope this is suitable and eases some your disappointment.

    I am willing to purchase this bottle but have not received a counter offer or any type of response that you are still interested in selling. I hope we can come to satisfactory arrangement for both of us.
