Crisp and bright

Those are some great colored bottles. I especially like the blue umbrella ink.

I love it. Can anybody play?

Play ahead, forums are for everyone. And I'll be glad to see other stuff.

Found this one in a river:

Wowiee, that's a screamer

This one had the original contents and seal, but no label. The content was very dark, so much so that the glass color couldn't be seen. The cork was leaky, so out the contents came. I was delighted that the green emerged. The glass is paper thin, so that the pigment isn't as dark as it would be on thicker glass.

Beautiful example of a great mold.

The three pomade bottles are, green, standard aqua, and a light powder blue

I dug one of the standard aqua pontiled T&M bottles in a trash pit in Galveston, Texas. Never knew they came in different shades-love this!

This one matches the other Mortimore for top shelfishness. I'm still trying for photo techniques that don't suck so much. This represents a new method, where the glass isn't washed out, but detail comes up. It's a work in progress.

Natural sunlight above you works best. I try to have soft light on the front when doing indoor photos. A solid black background works great.

Thanks, I'm happy to try that

Yep front sun light helped a lot. Took some experimenting with angles to lose the wash out. But here it is again.

This pontil was never in the ground.

I love glass bottles that are full of tiny bubbles. I think Don Ho sang about such glass. Love the great mouth too. (on the jar,, not Don Ho)

The Norwood's Tinct. V. Viride is a strange example to be in the color section. The glass is clear flint, which in itself is an unusual thing for this time period. But in the clear flint is a definite pink blush. The base photo shows the pink tine the best.

Wow, with that color, do you think it was gold they used as the coloring agent?
