So far I have seen four different variations of this design, like Red's, different pitchers, different hair one has braids, one is smooth another was textured the sleeves change.

Pictured are two of my latest Buffalo Lithias; One of them does not have springs embossed, and the lady (minerva or some other Greek Goddess) is different; I noticed that there is an even earlier version of the "lady" as shown by the earlier pics of the amber bottle on this post. I also included a Rockbridge Alum. bottle (R.A.S.Co) bottle I dug a few years ago. I have seen Bear Lithias, Elk Lithias, and other scarcer Lithias from Virginia; If any of you have a pic of a rare one, I would'nt mind seeing it.

Your examples are exactly what makes the Buffalo's, the extreme difference in designs. Toss in the odd colors, they're big, mainly cheap and easy to find...... whats not to love? Plus there has to be a couple of rare ones just waiting to be picked up. So come on pull them out from the junk bottle box, dust off your ladies and let them strut their stuff.

These are difficult to photograph but here's one that I dug recently.

That's a nice design and exactly what I'm was hoping to see, one I haven't seen. I have two very similar ones one already pictured (poor quality) and another I have yet to shoot. Check out her collar and her sleeve, nice primiative work with a eye to detail. She's welcomed to join the family if you put it up on the market.
