Old Chivas Royale
Hello i have seen a post here before regarding to what these bottles are worth but did not quite understand the answer.
I also have 2 bottles of chivas royale salute which i got from my grandmother.
One brown and one red (ruby).
i know they both are bought in the 60's when she worked for a company on a travel she had. Here is the information i can provide from the bottles.
Brown: Spode mark under bottle whit a pink tax stamp which are numbered E763193
Ruby: Wade mark under bottle whit a pink tax stamp which are numbered V434311
If i could get a estimated value of these it would be awesome.
Tank you in advance
IMO, unless someone is particular to the ceramic maker that made the bottle I don't think they'd be worth anymore than todays going price since Royal Salute is still being marketed.:(
Additionally, after all this time I'd doubt if you'd be able to remove the stopper in one piece as the cork has probably deteriorated over time should you want to drink the contents. Still doable but you might need a strainer!:eek:
ah ok, but i know that today they are made in glass atleast where i am from, and they no longer have the 12 colours which the serie is orginal, wouldnt that up the price?
If u translate the page whit goggle u can see what they have today, which aint the same has this bottle.
I also read something about a tax number on a site about these flasks. http://www.drinksplanet.com/chivas-r...e-4401216.html
is this a genuine fact or?
Someone that has followed the Royal Salute over time will have to chime in here.
I believe that there were never more than 4 or 5[at most] colors for their bottles but I'm thinking of time back in the late 70's or early 80's as a time frame.
I haven't held one in a looooooong time but I believe they are still a ceramic rather than glass but I could be wrong.
Having or not having a tax stamp might help in the dating but I[personally] don't think it drives any special value - just my opinion.
I went and did some searches and the regular[mass produced bottles] were red[ruby],blue and green. Brown was available for a period of time and there were some special bottlings to commemorate several events and black was one of them but that is all I could find. The Royal Satute as you know is a 21 year blend started in 1953 to honor Queen Elizabeth and the 21 was for the 21 gun salute for persons of honor.
Royal Salute was launched in 1953 to commemorate the Queen’s Coronation. The first bottle was actually green and then a brown bottle was released. The packaging then changed to red, green and dark blue bottles to represent the jewels in the Coronation crown.
Royal Salute that dates from 1953-54 is considered a rare find these days. For a value, we suggest you try www.mctears.com or www.bonhams.com.
