— Jeff Wichmann

SACRAMENTO, CALIF., UNITED STATES, November 21, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — SACRAMENTO, Calif. – A rare and beautiful Indian Queen bitters bottle patented in 1868 sold for $14,375 and a Lafayette DeWitt Clinton half-pint lime green flask brought a record $10,925 in Auction #64, an internet and catalog auction that went online October 13th and ended Sunday, October 22nd, by American Bottle Auctions (www.americanbottle.com), based in Sacramento.

The auction featured rare and vintage bottles from across the United States – to include Western and Eastern sodas, bitters, inkwells, whiskeys and more. “This auction had the largest and finest selection of Western soda bottles we’ve ever offered, with many rare one-of-a-kinds,” said Jeff Wichmann, owner of American Bottle Auctions, “led by the superb collection of Ken Salazar.”

Of the 75 sodas from the Salazar collection, nearly 50 exceeded prices from the past. “Together they brought in more than $80,000 which was a surprise to us and the consignor,” Wichmann said. “Eastern sodas also did well. When the quality was there so was the money.” Also offered were scarce bitters bottles from both sides of the country, a large inkwell collection and more.

The Indian Queen herb bitters bottle (“Brown’s Celebrated”), light to medium green in color, was the sale’s top lot, as eager bidders were not deterred by a condition issue at the mouth. “It was the highest price we’ve seen that bottle go for,” Wichmann remarked. The Lafayette flask, boasting embossed portraits and a condition grade of 8.8 out of 10, did gavel for a record price.

“Typically our sales are top-heavy with Western bottles and this sale had plenty of those, but we also had some of the finest known examples in many other categories,” Wichmann said. “With a little over 300 bidders, it was enough to set a record for us, selling 250 bottles. And although we had a lot of good stuff, we didn’t have that one monster bottle, so the gross was extraordinary.”

Wichmann added, “This sale didn’t feature any super lots expecting tens of thousands of dollars, but almost every lot with a quality bottle broke a previous record and then some. An Italian soda (Italian Soda Water Manufactory / S.F. Glassworks, Philadelphia) that normally sells in the $800 range finished at a staggering $6,325. It was one of the best looking examples we’d ever seen.”

Following are additional highlights from the auction, one in which 250 bottles sold for around $380,000 (“That’s almost 50 percent more than we usually do per bottle,” Wichmann said). A total of 303 registered online bidders bid on 260 total lots. About 2,600 online bids were cast.

A Dr. Wynkoop’s Sarsaparilla bottle that wasn’t particularly rare (one of about 20 known), but was a highly desired medicine and sarsaparilla category bottle, ended up fetching $7,150. Its early production, dating to the 1850s, combined with a beautiful blue color and crudity, made it one of the most popular bottles for collectors in that category. The bottle was graded well, at 8.

A Wonser’s Indian Root Bitters in the aqua variant – the earliest made of the more prevalent amber examples, somewhat rare, one of maybe ten known – changed hands for $9,775. The bottle had exceptional color going for it: a fiery blue aqua with good crudity. American Bottle has sold amber versions of this bottle, but never an aqua. Also, it was in near-perfect condition.

An R&H Columbia western soda bottle, made especially for the Gold Rush town of Columbia, in California from 1852-1856, topped out at $7,200. The bottle was one of only a half-dozen known and had an estimate of $7,000-$15,000. Columbia – previously known as Hildreth’s Diggings – was called “the gem of the Southern mines,” having produced a good bit of gold during the rush.

The auction featured five J. Boardman & Co. (N.Y.) sodas, “a ridiculous number to offer at one time and all five completely different shades of puce,” Wichmann said. “All sold for solid money averaging almost $5,000 apiece.” A standout J. Boardman lot was #176, a mineral water bottle in a grape juice color with just a hint of orange. Having a high condition grade of 8, it made $6,325.
“Western sodas are at an all-time high,” Wichmann declared, “but the fact is all of the quality bottles in every category ended up selling for the maximum. Western collectors don’t have the diversity or volume that eastern collectors enjoy, so it’s becoming apparent now that when a western bottle meets the color, condition and rarity criteria they soar way beyond typical prices.”

Western whiskey flasks made between 1870 and 1900 are considered desirable and are a part of any serious collector’s arsenal. A Jesse Moore & Co. whiskey flask (Moore Hunt & Co., Sole Agents), with loads of embossing, circa 1878-1882, made $7,200. The bottle was one of perhaps 25 known, but one rarely comes up for bid because collectors like to keep them close to home.

An early American blown flask from Louis Kossuth Calabash (S. Huffsey Calabash), embossed with the U.S. steam frigate Mississippi, powered its way to a new record price of $9,775. The bottle, brown amber in color, showed the mold maker’s name at the bottom and was graded 9.6.

Rounding out just some of the auction’s top performers, an Eastern Cider Company olive green western soda bottle, made between 1877 and 1882, went to a determined bidder for $8,050; and a McKeever’s Army figural bitters, graded 9.6, with a drum and mound of cannonballs, hit $4,830.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, November 20, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — There is good news for the city's skater community. Thanks to resident Chadd Sullo, a new skatepark will be built behind the community center.

Through a donation, the new skatepark will feature some of the more popular obstacles and landscaping for local skaters.

"With no skatepark in the area, kids are always getting into trouble skating where it's not allowed," explains Sullo.

"I want to create a place in the city where skating is allowed, and they cannot be bothered."

Features Of New Park

Once completed, the skatepark will feature different course obstacles, like rails and ramps. The area can also be a benefit for BMX, scooters, wheelchairs, and aggressive inline skating.

Donations by Chadd Sullo includes $50,000-worth of in-kind design work and $25,000 for construction costs for the new park. Sullo was able to get obstacles and landscaping donated by local businesses.

"For the city and the mayor to get behind and embrace a project like this is awesome," Sullo adds. "I loved skating growing up, but never had a static place to go. Children of the community can come and not be bothered and told to go away."

The skatepark will feature bowls, and these will let skaters move around the park without taking their feet off the board to push.

Groundbreaking Of Land Takes Place

A ceremony took place at the community center as the city celebrated the beginning of construction. Dozens of skateboard enthusiasts of all ages come to partake in the celebration.

The mayor stated that actual construction of the skatepark would be in a few short weeks. Earlier this month, the equipment, obstacles, and landscaping orders were complete.

Before the groundbreaking ceremony completed, one of the young local skaters completed a frontside 5-0 grind. It was the park's first and was on a quarter pipe ramp.

Popularity of Skateboarding Rising

According to studies, there are currently over 500 skateparks around the United States.

Skateboarding made their recent debut at the 2014 Summer Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing, China. Secondly, the International Olympic Committee has voted to bring the spot to the 2020 Tokyo Games.

Four events will include men's and women's park skating, and men's and women's street skating.

Additionally, the skateboarding industry is booming. The skateboarding market is valued worldwide as a 4.8 billion dollar industry. Also, that includes 11 million people who self-report they regularly skateboard.

In the city, skateboarders had to settle for using abandoned warehouses, parking decks, and the streets.

"It's all about letting skaters having a place to call their own," explains Sullo.

Future Development Of Area

The buzz of the park is stretching to surrounding communities. This skatepark could be the first domino to fall for other cities to build their own.

According to Chadd Sullo, skateboarding builds and strengthens communities.

"When a skatepark's erected, the word gets out very quickly," Sullo explains. "It becomes a weekend and after-school destination instantly."

"It also brings together kids from other cities. Also, skateboarding builds friendships and bonds that last forever."

The success of the skatepark could open up for future expansion of the area. The idea could lead to events, competitions, and other types of playgrounds in the surrounding area.

"I hope for a family-oriented time," says Sullo. "One child could be skating, and a parent and another child could be on the playground a few feet away. We don't want to alienate skateboarders to their place, but open it up to the featured attraction among other activities."

The park will feature lights that will keep the park open past dusk. Also, with the police station down the street, children in the park will feel safe at night.

Gourmet Living Launches Extra Virgin Olive Oil Gift Sampler

Extra Virgin Olive Oils from Italy, California and Spain

Tuscan Olive Oil ove Tomatoes

Spanish Arbequina with Bread

Three great olive oils from from Italy, Spain and California. Sample these exceptional EVOOs and experience the difference of a quality olive oil

Experience to distinct flavor of extra virgin olive oils from Spain, Italy and California. The perfect gift for the holidays for those that treasure a great EVOO.”

— Sheila May, Owner of Gourmet Living

GREENWICH, CT, UNITED STATES, November 20, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Gourmet Living introduced today a special gift pack of consisting of three 500 ml bottles of extra virgin olive oil from Tuscany, Italy; Penedes, Spain and California. Interested buyers can purchase these exceptional EVOOs on Amazon.com or individually on the company's website in its olive oil collection.

This three-bottle olive oil gift sampler is priced at $66.50, yet each product is individually packaged. Amazon Prime members receive free shipping.

These attractive olive oils were chosen by the owners of Gourmet Living for their taste, authenticity and value to consumers.

Toscano is a traditional Italian olive oil blend and of the three main olive varieties from Tuscany: Frantoio (50%), Moraiolo (30%) and Leccino (approximately 20%). This flavorful extra virgin olive oil (“EVOO”) was harvested in late 2016 and will easily last through March, 2019 if unopened.

The Spanish EVOO was harvested in 2016 and consists of only one olive variety: the Arbequina olive. This olive oil has a slightly more pronounced "peppery" aftertaste that Europeans prefer in their olive oils.

Gourmet Living's Californian extra virgin olive oil was harvested in 2016 from the Picual olive. It has a relatively softer taste profile than oils from Europe, but is wonderful in salads and for dipping bread.

Says co-owner Sheila May, "this is a great way to compare authentic extra virgin olive oils from Europe and a bouncy yet superb Californian EVOO harvested from the Picual olive. Americans can now sample the taste of premium olive oils that project their freshness and vitality."

The 3 varieties of olives used in Toscano are harvested in the morning and crushed in the afternoon to extract the highest quality of oil and the maximum level of freshness and antioxidant compounds. Olives are typically harvested in Tuscany between the 15th of October and the 20th of November. Green or half-colored olives tend to have the best combination of aroma and color.

While ripe olive tend to produce a higher yield of oil, its aroma and quality tends to suffer when compared to “younger” olives that have not matured on the tree. In general, 100 kilos of olives, produces 12 kilos of olive oil.

While olive oils from Tuscany are traditionally blended to produce a distinctive "Tuscan flavor," Gourmet Living's Californian EVOO is harvested exclusively from the Picual olive. It a somewhat lighter taste profile.

The Arbequina EVOO has a more pronounced flavor profile that tastes great in salads or for dipping bread.

Extra virgin olive oil is the cornerstone of the Mediterranean diet and many Americans have switched to olive oil because of its special nutritional benefits. The quality of EVOO produced in California has shown marked improvement in recent years as health-conscious Americans often substitute olive oil for butter in their daily cooking.

Furthermore, domestically harvested and bottled olive oils maintain more stringent controls over the end-product for the benefit of the consumer. Flavored olive oils tend to be of lower quality.

The health benefits of using extra virgin olive oil remains a controversial subject. Some suggest that olive oil helps to reduce heart disease and may even control diabetes. Sceptics argue that the“health benefits” of olive oil are not supported by independent studies. Nevertheless, both sides agree that incorporating more fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet (commonly consumed with EVOO) is healthier than consuming processed foods.

Sold in distinctive 500ml bottles, these olive oils will last at least a year after they have been opened for the first time.

Whether one is purchasing this olive oil gift set for themselves or others, it provides an excellent opportunity to sample authentic olive oils from Italy, Spain and California.
