WINNIPEG - This Smokine log cabin bottle was made by Alfred Andersen & Co. and The Western Importers.
Alfred Andersen founded his company in 1893, marketing cooking utensils to Scandinavian Immigrants in and around Minneapolis.
But within ten years, Andersen was removed from his own company.
Before Andersen got the boot, he created Smokine, later sold as Liquid Smoke, and he collaborated with manufacturers in Winnipeg to create this exquisite log cabin bottle.
These bottles are difficult to find and so collectors are more than willing to pour out a bit of cash to have one.
This bottle, in fair condition, sold on eBay this year for over $380!
