Apple-Touch-IconAWhile visiting with John Pastor and Liz Maxbauer in New Hudson, Michigan the other day, I was able to look at quite a few extraordinary bottles including Merchant’s Gargling Oils, Christmas flasks and Pattern Molded flasks to which this post is dedicated. The various shapes, patterns, pontils and lip treatments were a sight to behold. These pictures can only remotely capture the beauty of these bottles. I also included a few pictures of Pitkin flasks that dominated yet another shelf.
