This is by far the best of my 2013! SO Digger and I got this from a 1860's-70's privy. "E. Dexter Loveridge/ Wahoo Bitters". It's yellow-green. Has tiny, tiny potstone, but no chips, cracks or dings.

[attachment=IMG_1070.JPG] [attachment=IMG_1065.JPG] Nice bottles, everyone. I didn't get a many great bottles in 2013, but this was my best. It's a hutch from Stoneham, Massachusetts boldly embossed ORANGE. This is currently the only hutch known embossed orange, previously unlisted on hutchbook.

Hi Mike Happy New Year, I love that lamp. Most lamps I have found are usually clear glass and plain and practical. It is as you describe "lovely".

Rufus! Tucson AZ? that's super cool. I lived in Tucson for a year or so several years ago. my parents are still out there near Marana. what part of Tuscan? I would love to hear a digging story from there. what is your experience with privies in that area? only in old town? construction sites? near the University? what are they like? full of stones? are they wood liners? or stone? brick?
