RENO, Nevada – Antique bottle and glass enthusiasts: mark your calendars for the Federation of Historical Bottle Collectors 2022 National Antique Bottle Convention at the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno July 28-31.

The Federation of Historical Bottle Collectors was formed in 1969. Today it’s an affiliation of around 100 antique bottle clubs and members scattered across the United States and the world.

“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.”

The public is welcome to the convention and you don’t have to be an FOHBC member to attend, but membership is encouraged and available at www.fohbc.org and also at the show.

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 convention to see.
