GB024 "Flow Blue" Quinn - Halifax

Minimum Bid: $400

Range:$700-800

Sold: $600

The so called "Flow Blue" Quinns are a real anomaly. They were all likely discarded upon delivery. Most are puzzles, pieced together. This example may well be the best of the bunch. Two hairlines about 3-4" each on the face right side. Otherwise good. Strongly marked and matching stopper. With a proper cleaning, this bottle would be best in class.

GB026 Drake - New Glasgow

Minimum Bid: $75

Range:$100-150

Sold: $75

The scarce version of the lightning stopper style Drake New Glasgow, without the inside ribbons. 2" crack in the neck and a 1/2" thin stopper hole flake right side. Tiny stopper hole flake left as well. A bit of rust of burial. This bottle should be cleaned properly and restored (at little cost) and it would display perfectly.

Range:$300-400

Sold: $300

A rare J.R. Bennett Gaden's Aerated Water Works from St. Johns. Heavy rust stain. 1 1/2" pressure crack base edge front left that looks to be in-manufacture. Properly cleaned, this would be a very good example.

GB028 Fried - Glace Bay

Minimum Bid: $200

Range:$300-400

Sold: $250

This S. Fried Glace Bay ginger beer is one of the iconic Atlantic Canada bottles. Virtually all the known examples are puzzles that have been heavily restored. This is no exception. Heavily restored. Marker used to colour in much of the lettering. Sounds terrible but this is normal for this rare bottle. You could never afford the mint one, if it even exists.

GB029 Canada Mineral Water Co - Halifax

Minimum Bid: $200

Range:$300-400

Sold: $900

The Canada Mineral Water Co ginger beer from Halifax is an extremely rare bottle. Few examples are known. This one has a 7" crack down the rear, but displays perfect. A mint one would likely set you back $1000. Here is a chance to own a good one for far less.

Minimum Bid: $150

Range:$200-300

Sold: $150

A pair of beautiful Yarmouth ginger beers. The left one with the killer heart shaped trademark is from the Standard Soda Water Co. Fine 5" hairline down the left rear. Very clean bottle otherwise. The Yarmouth Mineral Bottling Co has had the top poorly replaced and there is 3" crack right rear. Still - a beautiful pair that will set you back when in better condition.

GB034 Quinn - Halifax

Minimum Bid: $100

Range:$150-200

Sold: $150

This auction we are selling a collection that was built by a collector in Halifax, so there are many Halifax bottles. He had an impressive run of Quinn variants, which you will see in the following lots. This one is my favourite. Note the oversize crown top and the glaze which refuses to stay above the shoulder. Tons of character. There is some heavy chipping to the edge of the crown lip, that has been poorly filled. A slight bit of stain from burial that would respond to a good clean. Definite candidate for a professional restoration. You will not regret adding this one to the shelf!

GB040 Daley - St. John

Minimum Bid: $100

Range:$150-200

Sold: $100

The Wm B Daley bottles from St. John are some of my favourites. Hard to beat the horse head trademark. This lightning stopper style example is in good shape, but it has been poorly cleaned. It looks like someone must have used heavy steal wool to remove rust stain. The stain is gone, but the cleaning left scoring to the glaze, particularly around the lip and in spots on the body. This is hard to see unless you hold the bottle close. It displays perfectly mint on the shelf. Marked and matching stopper detached.

Minor stopper hole flake right side. The centre one has the W.S. & Co mark both transferred and incised. Some unglaze rust on the square collar mouth but otherwise good. Nice looking bottle. The right one is taller and narrower than the previous. 1/2" base edge flake rear, but otherwise a clean bottle.

Minimum Bid: $100

Range:$150-200

Sold: $110

A lot of three dated S.H. McKee ginger beers from Fredericton. The incised 1892 is in excellent condition. Tiny 1/8" unseparated chip in the blob and a 1" glaze crack (not a hairline, just a crack in the glaze). Sans serif writing on this one. The 1893 has a 1" crack through the blob rear. Some heavy rust, but most likely would clean. Also sans serif writing style. The transferred 1894 is near mint but has a manufacturing flaw. There is a heavy 1" base edge separation right side.

The Crystal Spring Ltd from Truro is near mint. The A. J. Davis from Halifax has a stopper hole flake right side and some real minor lip chipping. The bottle far right is label only from the Home Bottling Co Ltd of North Sydney NS. I suspect a bunch of these labels surfaced at some point and were applied to plain ginger beers.

GB072 J.R. Threesome

Minimum Bid: $50

Range:$75-100

Sold: $95

The jury is still out on whether the J.R marked primitives are from James Ready (who had operations in Saint John and Halifax) or James Roue (Halifax). I suspect these belong to the former, but I have no proof. Either way, they are Canadian Atlantic ginger beers. This lot contains three bottles. Far left is a nice example in a slightly greenish glaze. Some minor rust and base edge chips. Middle is of the same glaze. A bit shorter. Near mint with a 1/4" chip off the blob inside edge. The righthand one is near mint with a great half unglazed blob.

This lot has five Canadian maritime ginger beers. The A.C. Roy Campbellton Ginger Ale works is a scarce bottle. This one is badly cracked. The McIntyre & Townsend St. John is also scarce. This on is heavily and poorly restored. The blue top Terriss St. John is a decent example with a few rubs to the glaze but no real damage. The tan top Terris has a 6" hairline down the back but displays ok. The Havelock Bottling Works from Sydnery has major and poor restoration. A good starter collection or dealer lot.
