Surprise Bottle Article in Martha Stewart Living

Martha Stewart Cover

At the FOHBC National Show in Wilmington, Ohio last year, Jeanine Burkardt (wife of collector Jeff Burkhardt) came to my sales table and proudly showed me her copy of the latest issue of Martha Stewart Living (August 2010). This eight page spread had wonderful photographs of a wide variety of bottles. Many of the shots included antique historical bottles and glass. There was even a plug for the FOHBC. The cover is pictured above while the spread is shown below. You have to admit…these are some rather nice still lifes!
