60 tables of bottles and friendly dealers greeted the buying public at the 2022 Columbus Bottle Show. Visiting with friends highlighted an exciting day of bottle exploration. Terry Crislip and I spent the night at the host hotel and were treated to a great breakfast buffet. Doors opened at 7 am for dealers to set up and early admission. After months of sitting at home, it seemed like the public was ready to spend some money.
Mark your calendars for the Columbus Ohio Bottle show on Sunday February 13th.
Hello Dealers and Early Admissions,
We are very excited about this year as many have already reach out to us about the status of the 2022 show. Typically, we do not send out contracts until
February, but wanted to get these out early this year due to the number of early inquiries! We look forward to seeing you May 6th & 7th at the Richland County Fairgrounds!
Best Regards, Matt Lacy
2022 Show Chairman
We are excited to be presenting part 1 of the Mel Hammer collection of antique bottles starting today, December 10th and ending on December 19th. We’ve sent out the catalogs and you should have one by now, the auction can be accessed by clicking on the link below. You might refresh your page to make sure you have the most up to date version. As we like to say, we have something for every collector and it’s never been truer in presenting this spectacular collection. Mel was a consummate collector of early Gold Rush type bottles which included schnapps, sarsaparilla, and gin. The diversity of his collection is more than we had ever thought possible, a myriad of colors and variants exceeds even the most ardent early “squares,” collection. But it doesn’t stop with squares, in addition Mel put together a first-class collection of western bitters, some western whiskeys and a generous selection of inkwells in both umbrella and teakettle styles with even more to go.
