( and/or  unsigned   practice bottles  which  find their   way to the  market  when  young artists   are  short of   cash to  pay this  month's bills)


I can say that there are a couple of Hugh's tools that are in my toolbox...

Method... The method to my purchasing madness is patience.. I patiently search for that seller who does not know that what they are selling is even a snuff bottle. That combined with when the same seller offers it at a super cheap "buy it now" as compared to auction bidding.. 

Logic... As you mentioned the internet has made researching and sharing with other collectors much easier..

Enthusiasm..... I have more than a pinch of  Cheesy

I found the pamphlet that this article was in on eBay..

Maybe that CAC shop sells a lot of those junk type bottles to tourists..
