We just added a new bottle to our collection

Latest Acquisition: (see above)

’50s era Carbone Wine Quart Bottle with Muscatel label, screw-cap and foil capsule generously donated by the lovely Bain Family of Lakewood, Colorado.

’50s era Carbone Wine Quart Bottle’s Foil Capsule and 6-Cent Revenue Liquor Stamp  (below.)

Although we can’t be certain of the date of the stamp, we know that Colorado Secretary of State, Geo. J. Baker was in office 1949-1953 so it’s most probably from around that time.

The “85” on the main label most probably refers to the price of the wine, $.85. This sounds about right.

Thank you Bain Family from Lakewood, CO. FYI Mr. Bain mentioned – and I hope I get this right – that his grandfather was in charge of moving the trains around The Denargo Market which was the location of  A Carbone & Co Inc.
