Sometimes You Just Have to Pause and Salute an OS Picture

Old Sachems - Watson Collection

Old Sachems - Watson Collection

I get so many emails from some great folks wanting to share their passion for glass. Here we have a simple picture of a grouping from the Richard Watson collection depicting a few of his Old Sachem Bitters and WigWam Tonics that I received from Jim Berry.

Good God, please give me my breath back. These proud barrels stand tall and announce their dominance to the other figural barrels. They simply can control the weather, room temperature and your emotions whenever they group.

Editor Note: I took the early bird this am from New York to Houston. I spent the past two days with probably the best assemblage of these gorgeous barrels in existence. Stay tuned for some extraordinary pictures and the rest of the story!
