    Very pretty old bottle. I agree with Andrey. I would pay $150 for it. The cognac in it – VSP – was a very average cognac when bottled and cognac does not age in the bottle.
    This bottle value is about maxed out at $150-$200, maybe as high as $250 if you find a Martell collector who is looking for that exact bottle for his collection.
