    I'd be ecstatic to have a bottle like that in my collection. That color and top are great.

    I've seen this done before: applying fake embossing. I'm now wondering if they all stem from the same source originally. Some sort of souvenir piece or something.

    Wow, wish I dug one of those up! They finally let you keep those at the quarry I went to.

    Thank you for the detailed response, but would you treat these fish like you'd treat bone? Your response seems more fitted at more of a mineralized bone.

    Based on the swirled colors, the shape, the hobnail pattern, and the rough ends, I'd estimate this to be from a 1960s table-lamp.

    While these are slightly newer (1910s-1920s), yours from the 1900-1910s period would have had a label something like these.

    Protect Fragile Fossil Impressions?

    Well, I dug up dozens of fossils while on vacation, but not only are the fossils highly fragile, but so are the rocks they are in. What can I coat them with that won't yellow, deteriorate them, or...

    I doubt it will but have not tried. It has to travel 2,500 miles with me across the country tomorrow. When it gets back to Michigan, I will probably fill in the gaps with a clear repair resin unless...

    I agree with sunrunner. That foundation still looks surprisingly new. If it's not brick or, better still, stone, then it's seldom terribly old. Plain, flat-faced concrete blocks are also a bad sign...
