A TREASURE trove of antiques will be on display at the Queensland Historical Bottle and Collectables Club’s annual state fair.

It will be held on Saturday, September 23, at the Cleveland State School indoor sports stadium, Corner of Queen and Wynyard Streets, Cleveland.

Organiser Keith Clifford said more than 50 club members and enthusiasts would show a fascinating variety from their collections.

This will include rare and historic bottles, artefacts of trench art,  Australiana, kitchenalia and an array of European crockery, porcelain and figurines.

“Members will also be manning stalls and tables selling a vast array of quality small antiques and collectables,” he said.

“One of Australia’s leading antique bottle collectors will travel from Sydney to be there.”

Mr Clifford said a highlight would be the free valuation service.

“Bring along that family heirloom and wonder no longer as to its value,” he said.

The fair runs from 9am to 4pm. Entry will be $5, with free admission for children accompanied by an adult.

Proceeds will go to the Queensland Institute of Medical Research.
