The market for nautical, maritime and folk art is strong and continually growing among collectors.

Art in Bottles is located in Owensboro, Kentucky in the United States of America. My wife and I have been actively involved in the buying, selling, research, and documentation of ships, folk art, and whimsey built in bottles and other glass containers since the 1980's. Bottles have been bought and sold from over 20 countries throughout the world.
