I have seen photos of a couple of Melvin Badger Pots previously but they have been very worn.
These pots date around 1900 - 1910 and the prints are overglaze. I have one from Cleveland but not the Melvin Badger which I do have a blue print Cold Cream Pot Lid and another Pot Lid and base with the base transferred with plain lid. These types are quite scarce as the age of them would put a lot in later dumps which are often burnt and being buried also tends to deteriate the print.
I remember those bottles! Used to drink pop from the "stubbies" as a kid in the 70's. Phased them out in the 80's here as they went to plastic bottles. Haven't seen one of these in 30 years and I do...
