President’s Day

WashTaylorHeckler_072Monday February 16th is President’s Day and I have included some great Washington Taylor flasks and Eagle flasks for your enjoyment. You can also read more about the Washington Taylor flasks by reading an article in the Spring 2004 Bottles and Extras. You can also see a nice video of a display that was featured at the FOHBC National Bottle Show held in Pomona, CA.

January Meeting

102_3123Please make 2015 the year that you share your talents to make the OBC bigger and better. Bring in your best acquisition(s) from 2014. Bring in one, two or more items that you just had to have. Items don’t need to be expensive to be treasures. Most everyone made at least one found treasure this last year. Make this the year that you share. No voting, just sharing.

Poisons

varietyBeginning in the mid 1800’s, poisonous substances came onto the market to control plants and vermin, and as surface cleaners. To prevent mishaps, poison bottles were given distinctive features, which today make them fun to collect. Colors like cobalt blue, inky black, and dark green ensured they were easily recognizable.
