*This is a draft. We will be updating this page in the near future.
The Federation of Historical Bottle Collectors, who operate The FOHBC Virtual Museum website, have established The FOHBC Virtual Museum to display, inform, educate, and enhance the enjoyment of historical bottle and glass collecting by providing an online Virtual Museum experience for significant historical bottles and other items related to early glass. It is a digital expression of what one might find in a real ‘bricks and mortar’ museum. The FOHBC Virtual Museum provides access to the museum’s galleries, exhibitions, resources, and support functions to all registered members.
This page is used to inform website visitors regarding our policies with the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information if anyone decided to use Services provided by our website, including historical reference, navigation throughout the galleries and exhibitions, as well as all membership and non-membership functions.
