    Recent heart breakers

    heartbreakers You're right Nola.River.Rat to be disappointed with these heartbreakers. I found a Guldens like yours several years ago and learned it was a forerunner to Guldens mustard and thought it to be a triangular capers bottle. I sold mine for $100, now I wish I had kept it :o

    Old Overholt Medicinal Flask Date?

    I agree with both CanadianBottles and WesternPA...without the label, I would think it was late 1800's, and maybe there were hundreds or more, stockpiled at the distillery that had to be used up, maybe it was a bottle being re-used. Either way, it is a nice looking, clean, crisp strap sided flask...

    Life root mucilage Pontil bottle.

    without seeing it up closer, it could be "flint" glass. Flint was added to the mixture in early clear glass bottles. It gives the glass a greyish tint, but still clear.

    Impromptu dig behind the house tonight

    Not bad... instead an after dinner cocktail, you have an after dinner "evening dig"... Cool finds. I like the amber strap sided flask. Anything on the base? Curious to see what else you dig up:p

    Books

    Bees... I would assume that if someone is maintaining his website, then there are probably some books to buy. When the website goes down, then you would have to keep an eye on eBay, face book or in second hand stores. Give the website a try and then get back to us

    Detroit Demolition Find again, Part 2?

    Gee, if it's not a Hutch, you probably don't want it then. Who would ever want a cobalt, embossed, 1870ish, pre-hutch era bottle?:o
