Mike Newman Bottles – Downstairs

Mike Newman Bottles – Downstairs

04 August 2011

Apple-Touch-IconAI am in Augusta, Georgia for three days of business and was able to sneak away yesterday evening to see the fantastic bottle collection of Mike Newman from Martinez, Georgia. This is an important collection of a wide variety of the best of Georgia and South, Carolina pottery and soda bottles. Mike also has a remarkable collection of inks, flasks and bitters bottles. The presentation and lighting is museum quality. I will post in three (3) listings. This is Post 1. Wait until you see Upstairs…WOW!
