Got a sifter for Xmas, so thought I'd post some of my creek finds in this thread.

Here's the best of today's haul:
Woodbury - HHK stopper - PRR cup.jpg


L2R:
Woodbury milk glass cosmetic jar (1930s–40s)
Hutter style stopper marked HHK (1890–1915?)
Coffee cup fragment marked PRR (age unkn.)
Sparkplug (1920s?)

Anyone recognize the HHK stopper brand? All help appreciated.
And a very Happy New Year to everyone!

Nice finds! I'm guessing the PRR china is from a railroad? Any idea which one? Looks similar to the CPR china we get up here.

My first guess was the Pennsylvania RR but an image search couldn't turn up a similar example. Another possibility is the Philadelphia & Reading RR, but they didn't seem to use the pattern either. Will keep searching tho.

I did find an example when I searched Pennsylvania Railroad but it was just a picture on Pinterest, no idea if that person is correct or just making the same first guess that we did.
