What is the value of antique wine bottle?

antique bottle

Joe W asked: It's an empty, green Chianti Cetti wine bottle that is 3' 11" tall. On label " CERTALDO - FIRENZE - ITALY. Holds one gallon and 12% Alcohol. The base is around 15" in diameter with wicker type material around the base, which a piece of that material is wrapped around the neck leading to the top. The neck of the bottle is 3' 3" with small label on it reading VINTAGE 1962. It appears the original cork is at the bottom of the bottle slightly damaged. If anyone can help me I would appreciate it.

  1. It depends u may need to get it appraised or speak to a wine specialist. But most likely it wouldnt be worth much if the wine isnt in it. People normally collect wine not just the bottles.

  2. 1962 does not make it an antique ,1862 would ,but… put it on ebay and get what you can for it and figure about 50 bucks extra to ship it -good luck

  3. If the original cork is at the bottom of the bottle, how did the wine keep itself from spilling? Any wine kept that has a damaged cork is probably worthless.

  4. Nothing. Use it for plants. Empty wine bottles don’t get much value unless very old (at least 200 years) or have something intrinsic in their nature. An old Chianti bottle holds zero interest for collectors.

  5. I have one, label is gone….cork still in tact and bottle is full…..bottle itself is round bottom with a vine twist neck…would love to know it’s value…..

  6. I have a clear glass bottle that is not just smooth glass like diamond cut it’s about 12″ tall and square. On the bottom of the bottle has FEDERAL LAW FORBIDS SALE OR RE-USE OF THIS BOTTLE” 1862 and a diamond shape in the middle with d162. The lid “top” is glass with cork. Want to know more about it where it would have came from and value. I have another bottle that is kind of shaped like “jennie” bottle no wording lid glass with plastic cork.
