Western Ginger Beers

GB059 Fairall - Victoria West

Minimum Bid: $1500

Range:$2500-3000

Current Bid: DNMR

There are four different Fairall ginger beers from Victoria (West) BC. This is the best. A solid cream tall pint made by the Brantford Potteries (Ontario). Near mint condition. 1/4" tiny hairline in the lip inside edge. 2" heavy scrape down the left side. Quite possibly the best example of this extremely rare and early BC bottle.

GB062 Thorpe - Vancouver

Minimum Bid: $100

Range:$150-200

Sold: $170

A Thorpe & Co Vancouver "Br Columbia" marked pint ginger beer. Inside thread type. Thanks to someone with a sharper eye than myself, I now see the top off this bottle has been replaced. You can see a find line at the shoulder where two pieces were grafted together. Also a base edge chip that was professionally restored. Displays extremely well, despite the repairs.
