Really looking forward to the 49er’ Antique Bottle Show in Auburn, California

“The Best of the West”

Really looking forward to the 49er Antique Bottle Show in Auburn, California. This is one of our favorites. Will be posting more information shortly.

02 & 03 December 2011 (Friday & Saturday) Auburn, California 49er Antique Bottle & Antique Show “The Best of the West” (9:00 am to 3:00 pm, early admission Friday $10.00 at Noon – 7:00 pm) at the Gold Country Fairgrounds, Auburn, California, Info: Mike McKillop, 117 A Estates Court, Roseville, California 95678, 916.367.1829,

Some of the most rare and desirable bottles from the 1850’s gold rush period will be on display this year at the Auburn Bottle Show. There will also be a non competitive group display in two catagories, London Jockey Clubhouse Gins and Wisters Club House bottles. These bottles both come in a wide variety of colors and this is a chance to gather the best specimens together for a wonderful display. We are encouraging all those who wish to display to pre register as space is limited. Contact Max Bell 530.823.3315 Read: Come Join The Auburn Clubhouse Showdown

I also understand that some, if not all of the ‘Monster Dig‘ bottles will make an appearance and be for sale. Read: Monster 1850′s – 1860′s Privy Dig in the Gold Country
