RENO, Nev. - July 6, 2022 - PRLog -- Antique bottle and glass enthusiasts will want to mark their calendars for Thursday to Sunday, July 28th through July 31st. That's when the Federation of Historical Bottle Collectors (FOHBC) will hold its 2022 National Antique Bottle Convention in Reno. The show and sale event will be held at the Grand Sierra Resort.

"I'm pleased to announce that this year's convention will be held in our Western Region, in the 'Biggest Little City in the World', and be our first national event after a two-year pause due to the pandemic," said Ferdinand Meyer V, past three-time president of the FOHBC and one of the driving forces for the event. "Along with the traditional bottle show and sale will be educational seminars, a judged bottle shootout competition, silent auction, cocktail party and banquet, membership breakfast meeting, displays, team bowling event, bottle appraisals, youth events, raffles and many other activities."

Mr. Meyer implored everyone to "come see some great Western glass and pottery from the major Gold Rush cities of the West and towns in-between, for just five dollars general admission on Saturday and Sunday."

The many events will make for a packed itinerary. People don't have to be an FOHBC member to attend, but membership is encouraged. There will be two special exhibits at this year's convention:
  • Top 25 Western Whiskey Cylinders: This display is expected to attract a special grouping of bottles that will easily approach $1 million in total value. Such a display may never happen again and, with the help of the collecting community, will provide an attraction that, alone, is worth attending the Reno 2022 Convention to witness.
  • Artifacts from the S. S. Central America: Come see this once-in-a-lifetime exhibit of recovered artifacts from the S.S. Central America known for its vast cargo of gold. The ship sank in a storm in 1857. There will be bottles, Gold Rush jewelry, firearms, luggage tags, photographs, currency, gold pokes, clothing and a treasure box and lid.

This year's FOHBC show is a must-attend for antique bottle and glass enthusiasts and members of the many antique bottle clubs scattered across the country. There will even be a free appraisal table for people to bring in their finds and possessions.
