Wanted Ohio Bottles

Can you help! We have a page designed to search for collectors wanting a specific bottle. Visit our “Wanted Ohio Bottles” page to see what people are looking for. We are really “Looking for a New Philadelphia brewing bottle for my son for Christmas.”

Swirl Articles

 

In addition to the Jack Sullivan articles, other talented writers have contributed to our success. Those articles are also being scanned and will be available by clicking on the “quill pen and hand” in the right side bar. Enjoy!

Jack Sullivan Articles

Jack Sullivan has for many years written an article for each Swirl about some form of Ohio bottle or stoneware history. I have been concerned about preserving this legacy for some time. My calls for help in scanning this awesome resource have gone unanswered. Sad! But it is going to happen. In the right sidebar you will see a picture of Jack Sullivan. Click on Jack and those articles that have been scanned are now available. P.S. when the article opens, you will need to rotate clockwise.

Thanksgiving Wish

The Ohio Bottle Club would like to wish all collectors a very restful Thanksgiving. Take time to appreciate what you have and know that you are the protector of your collection for the next generation. Make plans to attend the next OBC meeting on November 29th where Terry Crislip will present a program on Roman bottles. See you soon!

Pittsburgh 2018

Members of the Ohio bottle Club attended a sold out Pittsburgh Bottle Show and Sale this last weekend. Saturday night, dealers could unload their bottles and enjoy a great hospitality. Fried chicken, sandwiches, peel & eat shrimp, goulash with a spicy sausage, and pies to die for greeted 60 dealers. Sunday was the show and a nice crowd attended. The Pittsburgh bottle club put together an impressive display of Pittsburgh bottles and stoneware in shades of yellow. See “Read More” for pictures of OBC members and the display.

Expanding the Website

Over the years, many great articles have been written for the Swirl. We need a small army of dedicated computer savvy members to scan the articles. Those articles need to be preserved and available to Ohio collectors on the website. I can be part of the army, but I am not going to be the army. I need help. With a club of almost 200, seems like there should be plenty of volunteers. See me at the meeting or email me. Contact information in the “Read More”.

 On a second note, we need pictures of great Ohio Bottles for a Great Ohio Bottles page on our website. You can send me pictures and a brief history. See contact information below in the “Read More”. We can add the bottles to different pages by categories.
