Fantasy Jug for 2015 Chattanooga National


Fantasy Jug for 2015 Chattanooga National

25 May 2015

Apple-Touch-IconANow, here is some exciting news. Jim Bender, FOHBC Historian, has commissioned Jim Healy from Tribes Hill, New York to make a commemorative stoneware jug for the upcoming 2015 Chattanooga National Antique Bottle Show. Bender adds, “Jim made this jug for me at no cost what so ever. I donated the jug and Jim donated the skill to turn it into what we see today”. Jim picked it up this weekend and sent me a few pictures. I suspect we will sell raffle tickets for the piece. From the looks of it, every person that has seen it so far would like it in their home! Way to go Jim & Jim!



Some of you may remember the BOTTLES and EXTRAS story, “JIM HEALY, A man saving history one piece at a time” by Jim Bender in last years November-December 2014 issue. I thought I would share it with you. READ ARTICLE
