Beautiful Minerals with a Selection of Exquisite Barber Bottles


Beautiful Minerals with a Selection of Exquisite Barber Bottles

14 February 2015

Now here is a display that you don’t come across too often at antique bottle shows. Check out this email from Federation member Sandor P. Fuss reporting from the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show. Make sure you check out the pairing of the specific minerals with the barber bottle.


Hi Ferdinand,

Attached are a few quick pics of an exhibit case that was at the 2015 Tucson Gem & Mineral Show. It is going on right now at the convention center in downtown Tucson, Arizona. It is my 23rd year in a row attending the show. I spent three weeks there and I had a wonderful time, business was good.

Gail and Jim Spann, very famous mineral collector’s, put in a group of their beautiful minerals with a selection of exquisite barber bottles from the David P. Wilbur collection. All of my dreams have come true, minerals and bottles together in the same case! It was just gorgeous!

See you in a few weeks in Baltimore.
