    TSP overnight soak

    These dug dirty ones are getting an overnight soak of tsp. First time trying this to see if it will get rid of the dirt and other crusties. Know it won’t cure sick glass but maybe will be a big improvement over how they came out of the ground.

    Anyone try cleaning inks?

    I have had 5 bottles cleaned (tumbled) by a “professional”. Took several months and the best and most delicate broke in the process. I have a few dug inks I’d like to have cleaned but not sure they are appropriate for this process. Anyone have success with inks?

    Ink or bird feeder?

    I’m not sure about this one. Looks like blown flint glass with ground Pontil and good differentiated wear on base. Very symmetrical for hand blown so not sure of age or use but guessing ink or bird feeder. Any help appreciated please.

    Repo Harrison' pint master ink?

    Everything looks right about this bottle except I can't see any bottom wear. Also bottom is very uniform with light "orange peel" whittle. Some of same surface whittle on body half with embossing but pretty clear on non-embossed half. Differences correspond with mold lines. Something just seems...
