Hello, my name is Nova and I'm new here on these forums.

I found these two bottles in Kinston, NC about 4-5 years ago and haven't found any sources to find out what they are, where they came from, or what they're about (historically)..

If you guys/gals on this forum can help me out that would be great!

I got them appraised a few years ago at $5000, but I don't think the person knew what they were talking about.

Here are the specs:

They are twin whiskey/flask style bottles with slight differences to their appearance.


Bust on front of a general or captain of some sort.
His hat is different on both bottles.

On the side is a ship with a guy with a sword.
The first bottle the ship is upright with the guy holding a short sword/dagger.
The second the ship is sinking and people are falling off with the guy holding a long sword.

Bottle with upright ship has 4 stars across the top.
Second bottle has three sets of numbers.

They are both screw top.
Amber glass.
Heel has sharp edge.

One is slightly smaller and fatter and the other is slightly taller and thinner.
