The Historic Glass Bottle Identification and Information Website at SHA.org offers extensive information that helps determine the value of a collectible decanter. Auction websites, such as eBay, whiskey societies and antique bottle exhibitions, also determine the value of whiskey decanters.
Factors collectors take into consideration when determining the value of a bottle include the presence of a label, the presence of chips or cracks, and the condition of attached parts. Typically collectors place little value on the contents of the decanter.Learn more about Collecting
