    Mini wine bottles?

    QUOTE="Catcat16, post: 724927, member: 28751"] Blueing? I’m not familiar with that term. Hi cat bluing was used to make your laundry whites whiter. Your mother may have used it. My mother did, she would just wave the bar of bluing in the wash tub. Bruce

    New Additions from Local Bottle show.

    Never seen a quart hutch, do not think we have one in Canada at least not that I have seen in almost 50 years of collecting. Good finds and nice to have a bottle tumbler. You can pick up some nice bottles that need fixing. Bruce

    What the heck is this thing?

    What you have is a glass cane, these were often made at glasshouse to show the blowers skill. It is missing about 18" of length. They are quite collectable and quite sought after. I have included a screen shot from google images and it shows the handle of your cane pretty much. Bruce

    What’s your favorite beer bottle surface find?

    Sorry to say but I did not find this beer, my wife did. She was out for a walk in our woods and just laying on the ground was this blob beer. It is Silver Creek Brewery Guelph, this is a precursor to the Sleeman Brewery from Guelph. Cleaned up very nice and had the wire bale in tact and working.
