At Memory Lane
Here is an antique vanity bottle.
This antique milk glass decanter is a roly poly bottle and quite decorative. These old Victorian bottles are called by many names. This decanter comes with no stopper.
Material: Antique Milk Glass
Color: White, aka Opal or Opaline.
Bottle Length 6.5 inches
Bottle Width – at its widest point: 5 1/2 inches
Creation Date: 1885 to 1910
Maker: Gillinder and Sons
Bottom Marks: None.
Because there is a hairline fracture on this bottle, I cannot classify this decanter by anything other than “poor condition”. I have to tell you I did not realize that it had a fracture until I was taking pictures. But anyway, the fracture could stay exactly where it is at for another 100 years and it could cause the bottle to break in less than a week. You really do not know with these fractures. I have had a bottle for well over 30 years that I purchased with a “hairline fracture” on it and the fracture has not moved a bit. Yiou can see the fracture if you look for it. Please use the zoom in the pictures to identify it. If you do not notice it in any of the photos you should be able to see it in pictures 8 and 9 where Piglet is standing there pointing to it.
Other than the hairline fracture, the glass is as it was formed with no other issues, repairs, or chips. This includes the lip.
You would still be able to display this bottle without the crack showing, but I would not advise putting a liquid into it.
You are purchasing this exact decanter - not another that is similar to it.
I ship using USPS or UPS - whichever is QUICK and least expensive.

AtMemoryLane is located in the USA. I sell to the 50 US states, as well as, the US Territories and United States DPOs, APOs, and FPOs.
Information retained by AtMemoryLane includes the information that is part of an electronic sale. This sale could be in the Etsy marketplace at my shop, called AtMemoryLane, or it could be in my Etsy pattern shop, also called AtMemoryLane. The information that is included is information that has been provided by the buyer – which is their name and address. Additionally, any messages sent to the seller via the Etsy conversation system will also be retained on the Etsy site. None of this information is used for any type of marketing, spamming, or solicitation on my part. (And I will not be sending you a Christmas card either.) The information is and was used exclusively for your transaction. The financial information (credit card info) is not provided to the sellers on Etsy so there is nothing to worry about there. Contact information (your name and address) is used exclusively to contact you regarding the items you purchased (if need be), to fulfill your order, and if necessary for legal reasons (for instance for tax purposes). We, Etsy sellers, do not have access to your billing address if it is different from your mailing address. As noted above, Etsy is the only one that even has access to that information; sellers on Etsy do not.
I may use any photos that you might share with me for promotional or selling purposes.
Thank you for reading this.
All orders received by 8:00 PM Eastern Time are processed (mailed) the next day. I usually drop off packages at the post office in the morning six days a week; I normally drop off packages to the UPS drop off point in the afternoon five days a week.
- Etsy does not have a system where we can list UPS as an alternative. I ship via USPS or UPS, whichever is least expensive and quickest. I refund shipping overages paid by you.
If the shipping calculation is over by more than 50 cents, I will reimburse you. Yup, I will reimburse you 50 cents.
If the shipping calculator is under by any amount, you will not know about it; that is, I will not request that you make any further payment because of an error of mine, the calculator, or the system.
My normal hours seven days a week are 1:00 - 9:00 PM. I answer questions within two hours during this time.
On my off hours, I will normally return your question as soon as I open up for the day.
I do not operate with any smart devices - only dumb ones, as they simply do not work in dead zones, so I periodically throughout my day check the old desktop.
1. You, the buyer, shall ensure the items are received by me in the SAME condition in which you received it. You are not required to use the original packaging and box. Feel free to use your own if you so desire
2. In addition, please provide me, via a convo, the tracking number within one eight calendar days of receiving the item.
Returns can be made for any reason whatsoever. You will receive the original cost of the item and the original shipping. I do not charge a bogus restocking fee. Be aware that the cost to return the item (shipping) will not be reimbursed to you.
As you may or may not be aware, shipping insurance benefits the seller. I normally pay for the insurance, if any. The only time, you (the buyer) would pay for the insurance is if YOU request it.
I do not normally buy additional insurance as I tend to pack for a nuclear blast...or, at least, for war.
NO, I am sorry. I do not.
I do, however, encourage you to shop around. In many of my listings, I leave a reference at the bottom of the description to assist you in your research. This way, you will be able to compare apples with apples.
