I find them all the time--repros at yard sales. --Which ponders the question "Where were most original calabash bots made if not around the northeast?"

Very nice, but difficult to appreciate the color variations on a green background.

I totally agree. A different background would showcase those colors...

Are all these originals? Various companies made reproduction calabashes including Clevenger Brothers, Wheaton, and Anchor Hocking. But even reproductions are just as beautiful.
