Ferd, good to see you at Keene – brief as always it seems, but bottles, bottles, bottles.
Find the e-mail below which I sent back in May but appears to have slipped through your “net”. In case you did see the first one, I made a few improvements in my original- everything can improve with another “look.”
Now the surprise – I found the following bottle in Connecticut where it sat in a home for 45 years. It was originally found in Hartford, CT. It is 2.5 inches high and about 1.75″ at its widest point. I’m told it probably is a New England piece. You never know what will turn up where.
[PRG] Ken: This reminds me of a really neat bottle Elizabelth won at the 2008 FOHBC National Expo Auction in York. PA. The bottle is described as follows: AMERICAN CHESTNUT, Rich Dark Green, chestnut with the hemp wicker. 4” tall and 2 3/8” at the widest point. Recovered during 1961 demolition of historic building in downtown Philadelphia. Found inside a wall.
