...And help support our collections!
A generous local collector, Richard Monroe, donated 25 of these Collins Brothers bottles to be sold to support the preservation and use of Historic Saranac Lake’s collections.
Each bottle will be sold for $100, with options for a clear or blue bottle (shipping available). Please note: these bottles are old, and were discovered after spending many years in local lakes and rivers, and therefore may contain small imperfections.
The sale will be open to the public on Tuesday, October 19 at 12:00PM (EST). We will send out an email reminder at that time. The sale will be first-come, first serve, so mark your calendars! A link will be shared on our social media, email list, and website at that time.
Head to our website to find an excerpt from Richard's article in the Adirondack Almanack about his bottle-diving hobby. Many, many thanks to Richard for his generosity, curiosity, and sense of adventure!
Please note: these bottles are identical to ones contained in our permanent collection. If you would like to see these and other items in our collection, please get in touch! All proceeds will be used to house, store, and care for our collections. Questions? Send us an email!
