    Advice regarding miniature spirit bottles

    Hoping someone may be able to help. I have a selection of relatively old miniature spirit bottles and some are still sealed and full. would anyone have any idea where I may be able to get them dated and possibly valued or even sold?

    You could always check your local auction house. Many do valuations over the phone and then a further more detailed one face to face.

    My parents tried selling some on ebay, don't know if they vary much in price but don't think the ones that sold went for much, and some listings got removed as they don't allow them to be sold with alcohol in.

    not sure but once saw the owners of the Unicum factory display thousands of miniature spirit bottles from around the world!

    quite a collection, a little unusual but so is Budapest.

    ​didn't think I could sell the full ones on eBay but might just bundle the empties and sell them on there. I'll then take the full ones to local auction house as KGorman mentioned above. Cheers all

    They actually listed some as empty, sold a few, then had listing removed by ebay after.

    No probs, hope you do.
    I've got a bottle of Champagne in the cupboard that I bought in France in 95. Every now and again, we debate whether we should sell it or drink it. I always vote for the latter, and one day I intend to get my way
