We love Mondays, just because here’s another complete Courvoisier Erte Collection. This one is located in France.

Our reader writes “I had a familiar working at Courvoisier. Since the sale of the collection I think 1989 or 90, I bought one bottle each year as a present for my husband. I have the collection of 7 bottles plus the limited one “l’inédit”.”

(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.)

    I was serious – I bought 8 complete Erte collections in 2013. The most I paid for one with certificates, original Erte artwork, shipping box and matching numbers was $8,000. I can buy two collections in the US for $14,000 – Really!

    You was lucky!
    Someone offered me 10,000 US$ months ago and i said NO.
    Maybe in the States he could be more lucky.

    Thank you. I wish you good luck with the sale. I was not trying to “steal” your collection at a discount rate just gave you a bid based on my experience. I guess I need to come to Europe to resell my Erte collections 🙂

    Hi #12 mike
    Thank you for your reply.Does it have any paper and small booklet on neck?
    I asked two expert peaple about this collection and they told me without box and papers it,s value is arround $650 plus shipping.I am in US (California) Where do you live and how do you ship it?I do not have any idea about this matter.Please let me know. Thanks again. Paul

    It has a small booklet on the neck. The price, however, is MUCH more than $650 + shipping. Any REAL expert will tell you that.

    Good luck finding someone, who would sell you this bottle for the price you’ve named…

    Thanks

    Mike/Paul:
    The Erte no.1 with box and paperwork would sell for $1,500-$1,700
    Missing box is a killer for a collector but you should be able to get $1,000-$1,100 for it or try to locate an empty box… The reason the No.1 is scarce is because many people drank them so hopefully a few of them kept the empty box…

    Mike Hi again Please tell me how much do you want sell it.I am open to your asking price,and I think it will be negotioble. Thank you Paule

    Hi Paul,

    My price is $1,850, including shipping cost within the US.

    I have a couple of them.

    The bottle with the box is worth over $2,000.

    Thank you,
    Mike

    Mike:
    $1,850 for one with the box would be pushing the upper limit. I have bought several as low as $1,300 last year… Without the box you would be fortunate to get $1,100. Good luck.

    Michael:
    That’s your opinion. I have a different one. 🙂
    Thanks

    True it’s my opinion but it is backed by the experience of buying over 100 Erte cognacs in the last 12 months which would make it more factual than a mere opinion.
    Can you back your opinion with any facts? Where do you get a value “over $2,000” for a No.1 with box?
    Fulls set of 8 Erte have sold for $6,500 to $7,000 several times on this site in the past 6 months. The Number 8 bottle is the rarest and most valuable in the set by at least 20% (Only 4,000 were made as opposed to 12,000 No.1).
    Assuming No.1 = $2,100 + No.8 = $2,400 leaves just $2,000-$2,500 for the remaining 6 bottles? No.2 is worth $800-$900… which make the 5 last bottles practically worthless. The numbers just don’t add up.
    My number are $1,600 + $800 + 5 x $500 + $2,000 = $6,900 or $1,500 + $750 + 5 x $450 + $1,900 = $6,400

    The facts are very simple, and they are based on your own numbers. If you are buying those bottles in such quantities, than you are definitely a re-seller – not a collector. Let’s assume you are purchasing Erte Bottle #1 for $1,700-1,800. When you re-sell it, you need to make a profit. Profit margin in this business is about 20% or more. Add 20% to $1,700 — $1,800, and here is the real RETAIL price for this bottle — over $2,000.

    Absolutely true but prices on this site have historically not followed retail but US resale prices. In a marketplace where multiple sets of eight bottles with boxes have sold for $6,500-$7,000 in the last 6 months there is no way a No.1 will sell for over $2,000.

    I have several “RARE” bottles that of which I would be willing to entertain offers. I have a #8 with a ROMAN NUMERAL(XXXV) as the registration. Bottles #1, #2, #3 and #4 that have been “coated” on the inside so that the bottle appears to have courvoisier in the bottle. I believe that these were done by Courvoisier of France, as bottles 2, 3 and 4 are “factory sealed” as a normal bottle would be. The #1 is NOT sealed. I also have another #8(Registration 0959). Lastly, I have a complete set(#1 through #7) still in the shipping box from France and they ALL have the same Registration number. In 20 years+ I have NEVER seen another one available.
    I also have a #4 “SAMPLE ONLY” that does have courvoisier inside, with all of the paperwork. I received an email several years ago stating that there were only 100 “Sample Only” bottles for each number in the set. Will consider a reasonable offer for this extremely rare bottle.
    Please let me know if you have any interest in any of these.
