Good photography. Photographing glass is an art. Need to get you some older bottles now.

I have been going in the woods about once a week. That is all the weather allows right now. I brought home a few things but nothing amazing. Just wanted to add this broken Schaller's bottle for documentation purposes. It is from Cincinnati, Ohio. I have read that the brewery existed from 1896 to 1919 and then 1933 to 1941.

I wanted to show some photos of various bottles I've come across in the past few weeks while out in the woods. They are all either broken or have bad labels but I wanted to document what is out there. For those unaware, I post photos of my good bottles in albums here: https://www.antique-bottles.net/album.php?u=25572

First a 1953 7UP pinup lady bottle from Uniontown, PA. Made at the local Anchor Hocking in South Connellsville, PA.

That mug base hutch must have drawn a tear to your eye - not diminishing the others, but I'd praise the day I found a whole one of those. Also, I'd love to find a whole Pond's Bitters too. Anyhow, they are the ones that keep us digging and hunting.

Same here! Hutches are made so thick and strong, I don't know why they always have to be the broken ones. The thing that bugs me most is the most common bottles always seem to survive. Like the Heinz model #257 bottle lol. They are everywhere.

If that hutch bottle is still there, swoop it up, I'll take it! Got the 80% rule in effect...

Man, some of those are heartbreakers, especially the Uniontown ones. Dang..

Ever find any from Washington PA?

The Mug Base Hutch probably is 95% there. good enough for me. I got some super rare bottles that are only 20% there but with it or them being the only ones known better then nothing. LEON.
