This is what our reader writes: “My husbands family has a summer home on a lake near Canada. The family from all over the world gathers there in the summer. It seems to be the place were all family antiques and treasures end up from deceased relatives. This bottle was given to the family by a great Uncle who was a collector of fine spirits who lived in Chicago. We have some other old bottles but they are empty…seems like some of the brothers polished them off not knowing their value. We would like to know what this bottle is worth and sell it.”
