Got out Yesterday after work. On my Lunch Break I seen they just tore a house down & figured I'd stop by after work. SO, After work I did. And found sitting on top of the dirt a Hutch Bottle I didn't have in collection. I got 3 different Froelich Hutch's

Good Question. When I pulled that bottle out of a Privy I had two old timer experienced bottle collectors with me that been digging since the late 60's say they never seen the bottle or any other like it & never heard of it. I thought I found a unknown bottle. But research & asking around there may be as many as 2 others known to exist. Searching threw Directories of many different years shows it may of only been produced for 1 short year of around 1896 if I remember right. Here's a better pic of it. Very rare & Oddball Bottle. LEON.
