I have an old Absinthe bottle from pre ban, empty of course, it has a decent label and foil around the neck, it also has a lot of "original" dirt as it was sold as uncleaned. I would like to display this bottle along with other Absinthe antiques, my concern is the "new" dust that will accumulate, it cant be cleaned without damaging the "old" dirt which I want to preserve.

   I was thinking of spraying the bottle with polyurethane to protect the label and old dirt.

Any thoughts....be nice! 

   Thanks

Or maybe have a glass case made for it.

Thanks for the replies, for a few reasons, a glass enclosure is impractical, thats why I was asking for opinions as to polyurethane.

Is it not advisable?

I would post your question here for the antique experts:

but I think most would say leave it alone.
