American Poison Bottle Collectors Association
Writing about my granddaughter, Adriana this morning (read Granddaughter Adriana stirs up traffic at Balto Show – 2004) led me to the APBCA (American Poison Bottle Collectors Association) web site. Adriana is a member. She really took a liking to member Joan Cabanis at the Baltimore Antique Bottle Club Show sometime around 2003.
Poison Bottles - Adriana Meyer Collection
I thought I would post a little more information here. This is a strong group that is well represented.
