All Antique Bottle and Glass Collector sights are set for…
FOHBC Reno EXPO 2012
Antique Bottle and Collectible Show
July 27th – 29th
The Biggest Bottle Show in the Biggest Little City in the World!
Dealer Tables are Sold Out!
Folks this could be the biggest show ever with tables selling like pancakes. Look for close to 350 tables filled to the brim with antique bottles, glass and related collectibles. There may not be a 3-day show like this for years to come!
Antique Bottle and Glass Judged Shoot-Out!
The event will be sponsored by Norman C. Heckler & Co. This will be a landmark chance and great opportunity to see many great examples together in one event which rarely happens. A cocktail event will occur simultaneously. Categories to be displayed and judged include Drakes Plantation Bitters (4 log , 6 log and Arabesque), J H Cutter Whiskey (Circle Cutter, #43 in Thomas Whiskey Book, Sole Agent, plain reverse) and Umbrella Inks (pontiled base, smooth base).
Exceptional Educational Seminars!
The FOHBC is pleased to host a wonderful selection of Educational Seminars that you will not want to miss. This includes “Values and Investing”, “The Label: A Wealth of Information”, ”Grace Bros. the Company and its Products”, “EC&M Insulators”, “Altered Glass Colors”, “San Francisco Beer and Western Sodas”, “Hutchinson Sodas” and “The World of Bitters Bottles”.
Fantastic Display Gazebo
Bring your two favorite bottles. The Northwestern Bottle Club is going to take to Reno their famous Gazebo and set up a feature for people that want to display bottles in a non-competitive setting. The Gazebo will hold all sizes of bottles from inks to tall bitters. The bottles will be signed in with the person’s name on the bottom and that person is the only one able to remove them. There will be hired security along with others watching this display.
It gives us great pleasure to announce that Warren Friedrich will be the guest speaker for the banquet at the FOHBC Reno Expo and will also be one of the two 2012 FOHBC Hall of Fame inductees at the event. We hope to see you for some good food, great company as well as an informative presentation on a brief history of the “Early Glassworks of California” from the first commercial bottle factory in 1859 to the demise of the largest factory in 1899.
