Ed Herrold Passing – A True Bottle Friend

26 July 2012

This just in. It is with great sadness in my heart, that I must tell you and pass on this email to you about the passing of one of our finest long time collectors. Mr. Ed Herrold has passed away last evening. He will be sorely missed. Our prayers goes out to his family for their tragic loss.

I came across this picture looking online for pictures of Ed. I found one with Ed getting ready to tell me a funny story at the 2003 Baltimore Antique Bottle Show – Southeast Bottle News

Ed was a past Board Member of the FOHBC and a person that I considered as a friend. Ed was instrumental in getting me hooked on Bitters bottles. As a matter of fact, my first Bitters bottles were purchased from Ed at the DELMARVA Bottle Show in 2002. In the picture above, you can see I went straight to his table a few months later in Baltimore in 2003. I am truly sad. I hope his sweet wife Juanne is holding up. Stay tuned for more information.
