Fish Bottles make me Smile
2011 - Figural Fish Bitters in a color line (Meyer Collection)
Jerry Forbes just sent me this picture. Made me smile. Miss my bottles and bottle friends. Cold, gloomy and lonely here in my hotel in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
The last time this run was photographed in 2007, the blue fish had not joined the school.
