Raffle Bottles for July 31, 2004 Swap Meet

Book Corner - New Dr Pepper Bottle Book

This month the book corner features the new Dr. Pepper Collectible Bottles, Identification and Values, by Ray H. Duncan. Here is info provided by the author:

This book was written as a guide to the Dr Pepper and related bottles that were instrumental in the development of the Dr Pepper Company. It is easy to see the development in early soda bottles and the innovations made almost every few years from 1891 to the 1980s. For many years, I longed for a reference to the Dr Pepper bottles and the chronology of development. Unfortunately, there was none available and what few books did reference Dr Pepper bottles contained very little and often conflicting data. This is easily understood, for there were few if any records kept by the Artesian Manufacturing and Bottling Company and The Dr Pepper Bottling Company in the early years. The information presented here is based upon hundreds of conversations with bottle collectors, patent searches, limited printed material including newspaper and magazine ads, and historical speculation.

I have noted the scarcity of each bottle, and that certainly can affect the value of a bottle. Condition plays a large role in the value of any antique, and bottles are no exception. I have included a "common ground" price guide to many of the bottles listed in this book. Please use these values as a "guide only" for determining the value of a particular bottle.

For more info about the book, visit the web page www.drpepperbook.com or contact the author Ray H. Duncan, 1606 CR 761, Devine, TX 78016, (830) 665-6049.

Like all Southeast Bottle Club events, this swap meet is open to the public, so members and non-members may attend. Everyone is encouraged to bring bottles for sell and trade - but please limit what you bring to what will fit in two boxes. Please bring a folding chair to help us with the seating.

This is also the same weekend as the Liberty Antique Festival. Stay tuned for details and let us know if you're interested.

  3. Sunday Nov 21, 2004 9am-3pm: the 3rd Annual Greensboro Bottle, Insulator & Collectibles Show & Sale has been scheduled again in Greensboro NC. The later date in November avoids previous conflicts with the Pittsburg PA and Elkton MD shows. Full details at www.antiquebottles.com/greensboro

Raleigh NC Festival April 17, 2004

The Southeast Bottle Club's 2nd annual Spring Bottle Festival was held on Saturday April 17, 2004 outdoors at the NC State Fairgrounds in Raleigh, NC. The weather cooperated and provided a beautiful day. There was a great crowd throughout the day for the 30 dealers that set up. The Southern Ideal Home Show provided a continous flow of people by the dealer tables that were setup in the middle of the fairgrounds traffic. In fact, people were literally coming in all day by the bus loads. And the earlier advertising to bottle collectors brought in lots of bottle buyers for the dealers.

Plans have already been firmed up to repeat the festival next year on Saturday April 9, 2005 when the Southern Ideal Home Show comes back to Raleigh. See this page for details. The only thing to be determined is a possible rain date, which will be determined once the May 2005 calendar becomes available to the fairgrounds.

Below are some pictures from the show. To see all the pictures taken, click here.

Harrisonburg VA April 25, 2004

The Historical Bottle Diggers of Virginia presented their 33rd Annual Antique & Old Bottle Show & Sale in Harrisonburg VA. The show was another success that was enjoyed by buyers, who added some nice bottles to their collections, and dealers, who sold well. Congratulations to show chairman Sonney Smiley who put on an exemplary show with 64 dealer tables (49 dealers) and about 250 paid admissions.

There was another bunch of fine displays with 1st Place and Most Educational honors going to Al Funcham for his Fruit Jar display. 2nd Place and People's Choice went to young Lyndsey Grove for her Breyer Horse display.
