Apple-Touch-IconAJust a simple post today as I look outside and prepare for the next front. It will rain for a day or so. I thought I would share some pictures of an aqua Golden Bitters by George C. Hubbel & Co. that looks at wet and rainy as could be. No, I just did not wash it, the storm is within the glass. Notice the extreme character of the glass which includes amber striations. I have included another of my Golden Bitters (clear day version) below for comparison.
