The King & Joyce Hutch has killer graphics
Northern Woods Maple Syrup I really like but it's so beat up. Is it worth keeping, didn't find much info about it.
That the summer's coming, I'm a little scared to post my summer finds. I might have to look into some counseling. Wouldn't mind seeing what everybody else got this year put them together post them after Thursday September 22nd the end of summer.

That's a great logo on the hutch. The clay marble decorated by hand with glaze makes me wonder how expensive these things must have been in comparison to their later glass counterparts.

If their hand blown there's some that are pretty darn valuable.
I need to be better at knowing the differences on marbles, most of mine have come from 40's/50's dumps, but who knows how old they were before being thrown out for whatever reason. I was bored this morning waiting for some storms to pass through, decided to hit a mostly 70's dump within walking distance from my house after the rain stopped. Oddly a few older bottles and other items pop out from it, it's been two years since I dug there last. Found one marble and a super nice condition Pabst quart bottle cap in red, I don't recall ever seeing one in red, will look nice on one of my Pabst quarts I have from the same time period. Otherwise nothing else really worth mentioning and wasn't expecting anything special anyways. I did find an RC soda bottle dated from '58 also some Labatt's 50/50 Stubby's from the 70's still with most of the label intact.

This is the extent of my knowledge that little dimple on both of them is where the pipe was released when they made it. I'll do more research in the future I just keep them for now.

It blows me away that with what I'm digging through I could even find them

I'll have to look at mine closer, I know two of them are ob-longed or maybe went through a fire, although there's no burn marks on them. Here's a pic of the one I found today with a couple of the bottles found. Would also like to know how to exactly date Canada bottles, there's a "52" embossed on all them which is the only thing that looks to be a date code, the one with what's remaining of the label is a Labatt rather than Labatt's, IIRC Labatt was the earlier style, so maybe they are from '52 as I did find the RC Cola bottle that was dated '58 not far from where I found them. The Pabst cap has a price stamped on it of .62 cents.

Those are clay marbles rolled by hand. They were then glazed. The dimples are where the marble was supported by a "tripod" (for lack of better word) when the glaze was fired in the kiln, leaving those dimples (or eyes) on the marbles. Even though collectors refer to these as Bennington marbles, they were most likely made in Germany.
