Antique Bottle Show & A Brief History of Bottle Collecting

On Saturday June 7th, 2008 antique bottle collectors from the coast of Maine to the coast of California and many States in between, will congregate at the High School in Ballston Spa, NY for the annualAntique Bottle Show & Sale sponsored by the National Bottle Museum .

Antique bottle collecting is an internationally popular activity. Most sought after examples of glass bottles are those which were mouth blown prior to the invention of the automatic bottle making machines in 1903. These beautiful objects are treasured for the history they represent. At the early factories, strong men toiled in intense heat 12 hours a day, blowing glass bottles individually, using a blow pipe. It took a team of 3 to 5 men to produce each bottle and jar.

Through antique bottles, it is possible to trace 18th and 19th century commerce, the birth and eventual demise of worldwide industries, new advances in science and medicine and of course, human nature at its best and worst. Although rare bottles will also be offered, many of these historic artifacts will be available for purchase at a price anyone can afford.  Shoppers will also find antique stoneware crocks and jugs, out-of-print books on the history and identification of antique bottles, trade cards, and advertising materials related to the subject, and old postcards.
