Rare Antique Bottles Have Their Own Specialized Auctioneers

Auctioneers can sell just about anything. But for your rare antique bottles, you want a specialist, right?

As we all know, the antique bottle collecting hobby is happening these days. Record prices are being set right and left. Live shows are bustling. And online, the auction activity has never been greater.

Here's a pic of Norm Heckler's table, with his new-whiz-bang-neato display screen. It was showing a slide show, but imagine it streaming a live auction. I love all the new technology.

Here's Ray Klingensmith at his GLASS DISCOVERIES table. Ray specializes in insulators, and has added bottles and fruit jars to his auctions. I love how his catalogs include so much history about the bottles.  http://www.glassdiscoveries.com/

Below is Jesse Sailer, representing Jim Hagenbuch's Glass Works Auction company. I had the pleasure to work with Jesse last year on the 2010 Ohio FOHBC Nat'l Show Souvenir Program. Thanks again, Jesse, for all your work and help!
