I HAVE SEEN LOTS OF 8 SIDED AQUA PONTILED UMBRELLA INKS. I HAVE ONE AS WELL AS A TEAL ONE. I ALSO HAVE A 12 SIDED AQUA PONTILED UMBRELLA INK. I AM PRETTY SURE THE 12 SIDED INKS AREN'T RARE ,BUT WAS WONDERING ABOUT A GUESSAMATION AS TO THE RATIO OF THE 8 SIDED INKS TO THE 12 SIDED INKS MAY BE? IS A 12 SIDED WORTH ANY MORE THEN A 8 SIDED INK,BECAUSE THERE DON'T SEEM TO BE AS MANY? JAMIE

I know there are some 12-siders around, but from my experience, they don't appear nearly often as the eight-siders. I have a pretty nice little collection of dug umbrellas, and only have one 12-sided example. It's a small, aqua pontiled one. That one is special to me because I dug it in my very first pit. ~Jim

THANKS JIM. I BOUGHT ONE YEARS AGO AT A BOTTLE SHOW AND WAS GLAD TO GET IT. OVER THE YEARS I JUST HAVE NOT SEEN NOWHERE NEAR THE 12 SIDED COMPARED TO THE 8 SIDED.

Good thread Jamie, I am not sure but I know 8's are by far the most common followed by the 12 sided.Both come in several sizes and molds.. 6 or 16's would be the rarest and there are 10 sided examples too.

Nice group of umbrellas, Bill. You have some great inks and I always enjoy seeing them.

Jamie, I have dug one 10-sided umbrella. It's a mucilage bottle with the round shoulder. ~Jim
