How to Get the Value of Old Wine Bottles

Save

Some old wine bottles can be valuable. There are a number of factors in determining how much an antique bottle may be worth. While the simplest way to accurately assess the value would be to have it appraised by an antiques dealer specializing in old bottles, there are also some helpful websites and books that may be able to assist you in determining the value of an old wine bottle yourself.

  • Determine as much as you can about the old wine bottle, such as what year is it from, what kind of condition is it in and how rare is it. The more facts you can gather about the bottle, the better you can determine its worth.

  • Search the Internet. If you were able to find out anything about the wine bottle, search the specific bottle online. From there you might be able to tell how rare it is or if the bottle is in demand.

  • Look on eBay and similar sites. Find similar old wine bottles and see what they are selling for.

  • Go to your library or book store. There are books about old wine bottles with pictures and values.

  • Email an appraiser. Describe the condition of the bottle, and send a picture if you can. The appraiser will be able to give you a general estimate based on a picture, likely for free.

  • Take the bottle to an antique appraiser in your area. The only way to get the exact worth of your old wine bottle is to have an expert examine it. He will be able to tell you what, if anything, your old wine bottle is worth.
