Bytown Antique & Bottle Club

All Antique, All the Time 

The Glassblower

 

The glassblower is blowing through a blowpipe and is inflating molten glass into a bubble.  Glass bottles were made using this free blown technique, or were blown into molds. This image was the original logo used by the Bytown Bottle Seekers’ Club.

All About Glass Blowing

Bytown Antique & Bottle Club

 

The Bytown Antique & Bottle Club is the successor to the Bytown Bottle Seekers' Club, which was founded in 1970. The Club is involved in promoting local history through various projects such as calendars, radio interviews, newspaper articles, and online media.  It has proudly organized the popular annual Bytown Antique & Vintage Show, for 47 years.  

 

The Club has a core group of dedicated and knowledgable members who are interested in collecting antique bottles such as ginger beers, black glass, milks, sodas, medicines, inks, red ware and stoneware.  Members also collect antique furniture, textiles, folk art, fine art, maps, oil lamps, insulators, paperweights, glassware, decoys, advertising and nostalgic items. Membership to the Club must be approved, according to Club regulations.

Meetings

BABC meetings are held monthly, except for July and August.  Meetings are informal and business is kept to a minimum.  Collectible items of historical significance are presented and discussed by members during the show and tell portion of the meeting.  An important part of the meeting is the networking and sharing of knowledge, along with socializing over good food and drinks.
