    Hi, I am still interested in any rizzo examples....

    Hi, I am still interested in any rizzo examples. Hutch, crown or acl. Its for a descendant of the bottler if that tugs on your heartstrings at all. Any hope?

    Thanks,

    A fellow member identified this old jar as likely a 'William Hare' from Wilmington example. Its unmarked but a pretty close match! Thanks Jake http://www.academia.edu/3...e_William_Hare_Example

    Gave some embossed milks to a friend at a dairy farm. Traded an eleventh ward blob to a local member for these...i think he may have been a little too generous. Local blob and an onion. Thanks...

    Quite a few acl milks. Only two embossed. The blob shown turned out to be a citrate. Found a few locals not shown. All in all a nice backyard dig.

    Never did figure out why everything seemed so jumbled up. Found the remains of barrel hoops on the edges though. The hole only went down a little more than six feet. Pulled out another 'Foord'...

    No walls have been found so we will be expanding the hole when the rain quits. Will add more photos as they come along. Any thoughts would appreciated!
