“Just keep me in mind if you run across any of these that I don’t have. I’ve got a “want really bad” list for these half pints. Clear, teal, cornflower, cobalt, dark olive, pure yellow, dark red amber, peach puce, and black”

I always like to congratulate someone when I see a special photograph of a persons collection. In this case I see these four great pictures on Bottle Collectors of colored flasks from Aaron Mills. Aaron adds under one of his picture posts, “Just keep me in mind if you run across any of these that I don’t have. I’ve got a “want really bad” list for these half pints. Clear, teal, cornflower, cobalt, dark olive, pure yellow, dark red amber, peach puce, and black” – Aaron Mills

“Not only great color, Aaron, but the backdrop of the striped wall seems to accentuate the progression of the flasks! Another creative photo for some upcoming bottle calendar!”
