Vintage Lima Ohio Beer Whiskey Bottle Display ~ Collecting Lima

A few photos of the display I did at the 2010 FOHBC National Bottle Show.
It's just some of my Lima Ohio bottles. But only ones that are embossed with the word Lima. And excluding medicines and milks. So it is a group of Beers, Booze, and Sodas, with a fruit jar tossed in. 
Click-the-pix to enlarge.
This is just a group photo post. Eventually I will do posts on the individual bottles and breweries, with history and ephemera. 
The bottles are all embossed. The white paint is temporary/removable, just to help with seeing the embossing.

  • Fred Romer / Lima Bottling Works / Lima Ohio -- qt.
  • T. Sullivan / Lima, O. -- qt. & 12oz.
  • G. Geiger / monogram / Lima, O.

Various Lima Brewing Co. embossings, bottle clors and styles, and sizes.

Various E. Christen bottle sizes, styles, and embossings.

  • Rare Lima Department Store fruit jar
  • The Quilna Brewing Co. / indian face / Lima, O. -- amber qt.

C. Purtscher & Co / Lima O.
I broke this one setting up the display -- so it's on my MOST WANTED list!

4 different hutch embossings -- too blurry to make out: Christen / Consolidated / Harmon / ??

Consolidated Bottling Co. -- these are clear bottles that were ''nuked'' to become this deep royal purple. Relatively common ''available'' bottles, so no harm. I like them better this color. 

Here's an artsy shot -- not from my display:

And here's a couple of rare paper labelled Lima whiskeys:

  • Brook Club Whiskey
  • National Standard Private Stock  / Bottled by National Wine Co.


Note: These items are part of my ''Collecting Lima Virtual Museum''. They are not for sale.

If/when I find more information on these items, I will add it to the post.
