As we have come to expect, the Baltimore Antique Bottle Show was a terrific show! Plenty of nice Warner’s Safe Cures to choose from this year, including, in my humble opinion, the best of show pictured above. Your eyes are not deceiving you, it is, in fact, a Warner’s Safe Diabetes Remedy that starts as aqua at the base, turns greenish amber and then finally green at the neck and lip. This sweet bottle was on Ron Rainka’s table and had lots of folks drooling over it. Some of the other nice Warner’s Safe Cures included Tonic, Tonic Bitters, Bitters, 4-Cities Rheumatic Cure, Frankfurt and Pressburg Safe Cures, Log Cabin Hops & Buchu, Sarsaparilla, Extract and Cough & Consumption Remedies to name but a few.
In addition to all the great Warner’s, I got a chance to visit with some of the great collectors and dealers, including Jack Stecher, Terry McMurray, Rich Peal and Ferd Meyer of Peachridge Glass. The Baltimore Show never disappoints and 2013 was yet another good one. Here are a few more photographs from the show:
