Los Angeles Bottle Clubs 45th Annual Show on 10 September!
I thought you might want to add a post about the Los Angeles Show to your website. This is our 45th annual show. Los Angeles has held a bottle show every year for nearly a half century. The attached photo shows a few rare Los Angeles bottles. The small ceramic jug is a Plantation Whiskey (it reminds me of the early roman head flasks). The center bottle is a half gallon Star Wine in red amber. And the last bottle is a Radium Radia medicine. I wanted to put a J. Keller bitters in the group, but I don’t have one yet…..
