Richard Tucker Visit – October 2010

Tucker & Fuss

Richard and Sandor Deep in Bottle Discussion

Pam Selenak, Sandor Fuss and I were able to meet in Newport Beach, CA. over at Cathy and Richard Tucker’s for a light lunch one Sunday afternoon last October 2010. This is the first time I have spent some personal time with Richard and enjoyed the hospitality the Tucker’s put forth.

Of course the discussion quickly turned to Richard’s wonderful flasks. Sandor and Richard had them lined up on the kitchen table and other flat areas discussing each incredible flask. I kept looking at the Corn for the Worlds, probably my favorite Baltimore flask.

I managed to take a few pictures trying to catch some of the groupings and colors. This is only a small part of this award winning collection.
