News-Antique.com - Jul 08,2013 - The Federation of Historical Bottle Collectors (FOHBC) is proud to be celebrating their annual bottle show & sale in Manchester NH during the summer of 2013. This is the first time a national show has been held in New England, and it is sure to be a historic event!
The show will be held on July 20-21 at the Radisson Expo Center in downtown Manchester NH. With over 250 sales tables, 25 displays, educational lectures, a live auction, and a banquet… the festivities have attracted dealers and collectors from across the country.
The event is being organized by Michael George and Maureen Crawford, whom are both bottle collectors from New England. “Over a dozen factories operated within a 50-mile radius of Manchester between 1780-1880. With so much glass manufacturing history in New England, and such a large collector base”, explains George, “a show centrally located in Manchester makes perfect sense, and is long overdue.”
Whether you are a collector, enthusiast, historian, or just curious to learn more... Come join in the fun and camaraderie of this exciting and educational show!
