“I happen to collect unembossed applied top squares and knife edge flasks. The squares are ‘hands down’ the toughest to find, not sure why.”
I am sorry that I didn’t get the chance to invite you over to see my collection. I was swamped with getting the show in place due to the weather and I had sold a large part of my Gold Rush collection three weeks before the show, which left my house and collection in a mess.
I just saw your post on those beautiful colored, unembossed bottles (see picture at top of post or read: Rose Water – Lime Juice – Olive Oil whats-it-hold bottles!). I happen to collect unembossed applied top squares and knife edge flasks. The squares are ‘hands down’ the toughest to find, not sure why. I love collecting these squares. It’s not about the embossing as much to me, but the beauty of the glass itself. On another note, I would like to thank you for making the trip out in that crazy weather we had. I hope you had a good show.
Regards, Mike McKillop
[PRG] Wow, some great colors and pictures Mike! Thanks. I agree these colored squares and cylinders are beautiful simple forms and easy to appreciate. Wouldn’t it be fun to mix the squares and cylinders together for a photo opportunity? Note: Mike is referring to the Auburn, CA, 49er Antique Bottle Show this past weekend.
