I have one of these. How much are they worth?

Responses:

It’s worth what people are willing to pay for it.

The double ended baby bottle was invented in 1894 by a pharmaceutical company called Allen & Hanburys. This glass feeding bottle has 2 ends: one was for the nipple and the other was for adding the food. The second hole was larger thus allowed the bottle to be cleaned properly. It is likely that the development of this double ended nursing bottle help prevent many babies from dying of infection due to contaminated food. Read more about the history of baby bottles here.

Like all antiques and vintage items, your double ended baby bottle is worth what people are willing to pay for it. A quick look on the internet shows that double ended baby bottles are selling for $10 to $20. There are some that are marked at $75.

Good Luck, bfm.com
