The link only gets you so far; so you're going to have to get to lot 107 on your own. Now, please be aware that in the description, the issue that example has, is stated to be an open bubble. If you view the video, you'll see that it is NOT an open bubble, but a ding type chip. The one being offered here, has no damage whatsoever and in my opinion, it's really not all that far off from being mint. Also, what kicks the rareness factor up a few notches, is that the bottle has its original labels which have been covered over by some kind of clear adhesive film.In a sense, tape; but I don't believe it to be actual tape. Anyway, this was not done by me. I suppose a previous owner must have come up with that brainstorm and most likely figured he's doing a good thing by protecting the labels. The addition of this bottle having its labels makes it an EXTREMELY rare find and on the larger label, you should be able to notice that at the bottom left corner of it, is 713 SPRAGUE and interestingly enough, MILL and SPRAGUE St. Is the location embossed on the Durkin.
Now, the Durkin is also a great looking bottle with the 8 sided base and VERY bold embossing. Unfortunately though, it's got a few things that I need to address with you. You'll see in pic #5, that there's a bubble that had a partial opening in the cover glass which has been filled in and stabilized and to offer a visual comparison, the open portion would be compared to a scoop of ice cream sitting on top of a cone. Also, there was a small chip on the top edge of the lip opposite where the embossing is, that has also been repaired. I chose not to show a photo of it because I'm limited to 12 photos and I felt that it was more important to show the other ones I decided to use.
So other than those, there is virtually no sign of any wear and it displays as a near pristine perfect piece; as does the LA Wine Co. Please be sure to view all 12 photos carefully; as they too, are considered as being part of the description. & Los Angeles Wine Co.
