Book Corner - The Whiskey Jug Book

This month the Book Corner features The Whiskey Jug Book by Chuck Neese. This is the first book dedicated to stoneware advertising whiskey jugs from the Bourbon Belt. The book features antique pottery ads from 1850 thru 1920 and is illustrated with over 200 photos of collectible jugs. Histories of some of the key whiskey companies (like Jack Daniels and Green River) are covered. A section is devoted to "What's a Whiskey Jug Worth?" to cover rarity, age, condition, and repairs. And another section on "Price History" that lists what collectors paid for certain jugs over time.

This book can be order by mailing $20 ($18 for book, $2 for postage) to The New Company, PO Box 50667, Nashville, TN 37205. The author Chuck Neese may be contacted at (615) 356-9127, Email: chuckneese@hotmail.com

Bottle Poem

The following poem was written by Joel Ferguson of Slidell, LA for his book on New Orleans and Louisiana sodas. It won third place in 1998 at the National Library of Poetry. If they understood what a pontil, hutch, or crown top was, they might have awarded it higher.
THE FORGOTTEN ONES

THEY WERE OLD WHEN THE CENTURY WAS NEW,
NONE KNOWS HOW LONG THEY SLEPT BENEATH THE GROUND,
WHERE IN THE END OUR QUESTING SHOVELS FOUND,
THEIR TARNISHED GLASS REMAINS AND BROUGHT THEM BACK TO VIEW.

THERE WERE PONTILS, HUTCHES, AND CROWNS AS WELL,
ALL EMBOSSED WITH THE NAMES OF A DISTANT PAST,
SO LONG FORGOTTEN UNTIL AT LAST,
WE BROUGHT THEM BACK, BUT NO STORIES COULD THEY TELL.

NEITHER OF THE MEN WHO MADE THEM OR THE FLAVORS WITHIN,
WE COULD ONLY IMAGINE AND WISH THAT WE KNEW,
BUT TIME HAD ERASED FOREVER, NOT LEAVING A CLUE,
OF WHO THEY WERE AND IN WHAT PLACE DID THEY BEGIN.

OH, IF ONLY THEY COULD TALK, WHAT STORIES COULD THEY TELL,
OF THE SMELLS, THE PEOPLE, AND A NATION HEADED WEST,
AND OF A TIME AND ERA LONG GONE AND PUT TO REST,
A TIME WHEN THERE WAS A GREAT CIVIL WAR AND THE OLD SOUTH FELL.

HOW I WISH THAT I COULD GO BACK FOR A BRIEF MOMENT IN THE PAST
TO THE DISEASED RIDDEN CITY, MUDDY STREETS, AND COAL BLACKENED SKY,
TO MEET THOSE SODA PIONEERS WHO WOULD HAVE NEVER IMAGINED WHY,
THEIR MEMORY WOULD FOREVER LAST, IN THE HANDS OF A DISTANT STRANGES GRASP.

OH, IF ONLY THEY COULD TALK, IF ONLY THEY COULD TALK, WHAT STORIES COULD THEY TELL?

Joel Ferguson, Palm Sunday, 1997

Ebay Tips

The hot tip this issue comes from Teddy Speas, who noticed this announcement that eBay users with an Email address for their user ID will automatically have it changed to a non-Email ID. This change is scheduled to occur January 2004. The reason is to reduce the chance of fraud with eBay Email addresses. For more details, see this page: www.ebay.com/eumfaq.html

Southeast Bottle Club T-shirts, Caps, Tote Bags

Show your pride in Southeast bottle collecting by buying one of the t-shirts, caps, tote bags, or other items bearing the Southeast Bottle Club logo. These items can be ordered online at:
www.cafeshops.com/sebottleclub
If your club would like to setup their own site to sell stuff with their logo, contact my wife Linda Lynch at Email llynch@nc.rr.com

Upcoming Southeast Bottle Club Events

The Southeast Bottle Club sponsors an annual show and several other events each year. Two swap meets will be scheduled with a presentation, raffle, and buying/selling like that last event at Granddaddy's. We are currently planning these two swap meets:
  1. Fall event in Wilson, NC with presenation by Vernon Capps. The Wilson County Fairgrounds has agreed to let us use Exhibit Hall A for a reasonable price, but it's not air-conditioned (fans only) so will wait to schedule an event there when the temperatures cool down in the Fall. If anyone knows of a cheap air-conditioned facility near Wilson/Goldsboro, then please let me know.
  2. Winter event at Granddaddy's Antique Mall in Burlington, NC with presentation by John Patterson (NC Milk Bottle Expert).
These will be Saturday noon events. Stay tuned for details as we line up dates for each swap meet. If you are interested in presenting, please contact Reggie.

The annual indoor show has been confirmed for Sunday Nov 9, 2003 in Greensboro, NC. Details on this 2nd annual show are on this web page: www.antiquebottles.com/greensboro Last year's show was a big success, and this year should be bigger as we do a joint show with the Blue Ridge Insulator Club.

Last item being planned is an outdoor bottle show on the NC State Fairgrounds in Raleigh. This was done in 2001 and was a big success.

Membership

The Southeast Bottle Club does not require membership to receive its newsletter by Email or to attend any of its events.

Click here for the online membership application, or for printed copies just fill out the application on the inside of the back page. Remember that paid members can run free ads in this newsletter, and when you consider the newsletter is distributed to over 3,100 collectors, that's pretty cheap advertising for your bottle dollars.

North Carolina Top 10 Bottle Contest

Bill Baab recently published a list of the top 20 bottles from South Carolina in the FOHBC magazine. He suggested I do the same for North Carolina, and the results could also be published in the FOHBC magazine. Sounds like a great idea to me, so here's how we'll do it. Rather than a top 20, I wanted to find what Southeast newsletter readers think are the top 10 in each bottle category from NC. This will help remove the bias from whether people feel one category is superior to another. The contest will be done in 3 phases:
  1. Collect nominations in each category.
  2. Have readers vote on nominations.
  3. Publish the results.
The nomination collection will start with this issue, and the next two phases will appear in subsequent issues. Here's the form to submit your nominations in each category:
www.antiquebottles.com/southeast/nctop10nom.html
You can open an Email letter to Southeast Bottle Club, then copy/paste the above web page form to the Email, fill it in, then click "Send" to Email it. Or you can print the form and mail it in to the address on the form. For our readers without Email who received this newsletter by Email, a copy of this form is included in the back of the printed newsletter. Deadline for submissions of your nominations is Nov 9, 2003, which is the same date as the upcoming Greensboro NC bottle show sponsored by the Southeast Bottle Club. Forms will also be available at that show for attendees to submit their nominations.

Show Report

This section provides reports on any recent shows, auctions, or other events where bottles were sold. If you are going to a bottle show that Reggie plans to attend, please bring your show & tell bottles so he can photograph them and publish in this newsletter.

Louisville National Show June 27-29

The FOHBC (Federation of Historical Bottle Collectors) held their National Show June 29th in Louisville, KY. President Ralph Van Brocklin, Wayne/June Lowry, John Pastor, and many others are to be congratulated for their hard work putting on this successful show. This was a two day show (Sat/Sun) with about 230 dealer tables. There was a nice auction on Sat night that was run by Norman Heckler. Friday night was the awards banquet where the Southeast Bottle Club won three awards: 2nd place for show flyer, 3rd place for newsletter, and President's Award to Reggie for tremendous effort shown towards promoting the hobby.

Plans have already been confirmed for the next show in Memphis, TN - which will be the EXPO. Location will be the Memphis-Cook Convention Center in downtown Memphis. This hall will accomodate up to 550 sales tables and 50 displays for the every-four-year bottle and stoneware extravaganza planned and conducted by the Federation of Historical Bottle Collectors. Contracts and information may be obtained by contacting EXPO Chairman Gene Bradberry at Expo2004@midsouth.rr.com

Shupps Grove Bottle Festival

The 2nd annual Shupp's Grove Bottle Festival was held July 17-19 in Adamstown, PA. Reggie unfortunately missed this year's show (his wife broke her leg), but he heard great reports from dealers and collectors who attended. The show featured over 180 dealers from across the country. The 3 day festival provided 24 hour bottle dealing (some people do their best buys at night), plenty of bottle chat with new and old friends, cook outs, and even a few poker games.

Show chairmen Steve Guion and Jere Hambleton provided these photos. Click any photo below to see a close-up.
