     The Tulsa Antiques and Bottle Club was founded in 1970 as a group of enthusiastic collectors of antique and vintage bottles and jars.  Collectible bottles fall into many categories, to include soda pop, milks, spirits, beers, medicines, stoneware, nursers, fire extinguishers,  target balls, cosmetics,

perfumes and many others.  Desirable antique jars include those for candy, tobacco, canning,

apothecary, countertop displays, and more.   The club's collectors initially fell into two general categories; those acquiring bottles via estate

sales, auctions, antique and bottle shows or

other collectors and  those searching for

bottles  in riverbeds, digging in old dumps

or outhouses, prowling through  old buildings

or barns, and other places where bottles

might be  found. 

   As time passed, the focus of the club has

expanded greatly, adding members  who

collect antiques and vintage ceramics, glass,

marbles, advertising, coin-operated devices,

paper, ephemera, photos, toys, cast iron,

relics, etc.  Many members have been long

time collectors who are willing to share

their knowledge of antiques and 

collectibles regarding authenticity, age,

value, and reproductions. Periodic membership meetings are held to discuss the ongoing shows, auctions, estate sales, etc. as well as recently discovered items, along with our annual Antique Advertising and Bottle Show which takes place in June.  Most meetings also center around the presentation of a topic of interest, to enhance members' knowledge regarding collectible items

from the past.
