MD-2014 Super Example Glob Top Fifth. Pioneer Bear
Here is a fantastic example of this ever popular San Francisco whiskey.
This amber fifth has a crooked neck and drippy applied top. It is embossed "Wm. H. Spears & Co.Old Pioneer Whiskey ( Bear) A. Fenkhausen & Co.Sole Agents, S.F." The embossing on this one is very bold, and not washed out like the majority of these. This one has only the tiny 1/2" X 1/2" mold patch on the reverse, and not the large mold repair like almost all of these. As a matter of fact, the more rare "Two Named bear" has this particular feature leading me to believe this is the earliest version of the "One Named bear". The sharp embossing confirms this too. Condition is about mint with no damage...not even a scratch. Never cleaned, there is only a small 1/8" onion skin bubble on the base edge...this is a super example of this whiskey.

MD-524 Top Example- Gold Dust Bourbon
Here is a super example of this scarce San Francisco glob top fifth. This bluish aqua bourbon has very thick and heavy glass. The embossing is very strong and while my photos do not show the bubbles, this one has thousands of champagne and larger bubbles. This is the most bubbly aqua Gold Dust I have ever seen. These bottles almost always have some issue or distraction like flashes, wear on the embossing, open bubbles or a weak embossing pattern. This one however has NO distractions, and is near mint plus in condition. The large applied top has green blobs and streaks of glass. Again, this one is SUPER BUBBLY. It is the finest aqua Gold Dust I have seen in 40 plus years of collecting western glass. BUY NOW $2300 or OFFER.
