The bases, which also shows the color variations well.

Aquas to light greenish aqua, the most common colors.

Here they are from light green to citron, with the second from the left having both colors, which is a scarce one to find. The others aren`t too hard to come by if you look.

Here are three of my favorites, the two on the left have so many waves of fine bubbles that it gives them a clambroth type of appearance, especially the clear one. The one on the right is one of the crudest bottles I have ever had.

Here are the different shades of cobalt and Prussian blue ones, they are more common than you`d think but you don`t see them often for sale because they are uncommon and attractive. The one on the right is Prussian blue, which is like a mixture of cobalt blue and grey.

The ambers that are like a Stoddard amber because of a bit of more brown to the color. I`m only Using Stoddard as a color example, I`n not suggesting that they were made there because they aren`t old enough.

Shades of regular amber, which are fairly easy to find.

Whoa, Bill,

Me, too! Thanks for this great Bixby Thread, Bill! You've got the Defining collection in my eyes.
