My biggest heartbreaker ever

A while ago I was walking a local creek that really did not have too much glass in it at all. The only things I found were a marble and a bottle stopper. Then I just this bottle. It is a broken falls city bottling works what I believe to be a hutch. I Looked on hutch book and there is one extremely similar KY0086. But mine has more embossing broken off. Hutch book has it listed as Rare.


Thank you

Doesn't look like it has been in the water very long. It would have more of a hazy sand blasted look to it. My guess is it came out of the bank, not too far up stream from where you found it. Just a thought.

Yeah Buddy! I know all about the heartbreak of finding something rare or scarce and it's broken.. ugh:(
Tom, I've actually kept them for future projects and did some knapping off ugly angles and then sandpapered the sharp edges so I could still display them.
