As a newcomer to collecting flagons I was wondering if there is a list of companies that have flagons with their name on them.

Collecting items that were made for everyday use / not made for collecting, means their isn't usually books on how many there is to collect, which is the best thing about it,

If you wanted to you could make one, start logging what you find, Lou London digin (Lou Squillaci) has / may be selling off a massive collection of high quality pictorial flagons, he's on fb, everyone knows him, at most shows, I could ask him and give you his mobile number if your interested, he's probably the biggest collector of top shelf flagons I know, and is massively downsizing and has sold off alot of his gear lately and is ongoing, if you wanted his number pm me,

I was going to link to one of my old posts of his whole collection, but it was via photobucket, and it has all been replaced by 3rd party hosting ransomware, so I deleted the whole post (keep forum costs down by getting rid of old now useless volume)

One of my all time favourites, (think Lou has a few variants of this)

Mostly, I would say its down to experience, especially with a local flagon, but does include obtaining the better ones like above.

I have noticed that flagons have made a big surge forward in the bottle world with prices rising for the desirable ones. Personally, I think flagons are wonderful pieces of history and should not be ignored, but they do pose a problem with taking up room. For me, its my town only and I really like them.:cool:

Id say you are a brave man collecting flagons as there must be 1000s of them from Britain so you'll need plenty of room. I collect from my home town of Carmarthen which is a relatively small town and so far Ive got in the region of 130 flagons from there and there are still more out there Im missing. Maybe just narrow down the scope and collect from one area?


Always on the hunt for Carmarthen and surrounding areas as well as all sorts of Hansards Leigh & Co and Groves & Whitnall bottles

As far as prices go

Slab seals and good pictorials are most collected, just company names printed or incised are the least wanted, and can be found cheap, can get lucky with the right town or company name and rarity vs collectors, as with anything,

but rule of thumb,

Company name / town incised or printed are least desirable, and slab seals and good pictorials far outshine them

Condition is everything, very prone to have lumps out the lip, handles missing, or hairline cracks, all affects value,

And medium to smaller sizes are better the bigger they get the less people have room for them at home,

Start low end, and learn before splashing the cash and being disheartened you've overspent etc, you can get alot for your money,

Great find that link Torpedo Tim, so happy he uploaded them properly so the 3rd party hosts didn't ruin the post,

Lou specifically only collects any flagons he likes, so his house is full of them, and garden, and shed,
