    Creek gave up a couple...

    Got through working early yesterday. Well, I never get through but it was nice out, so I quit. Sue me! Hit the creek which was up a little. Had to take it easy so as not to get a wader full of cold water, but the regular rains recently had blown things out around logs and all. Spotted a few where it was shallow enough to see with the water being a little cloudy and all. Between the deep spots and the rippling, I doubt that I covered more than 30%, so I'm gonna get some chest waders and go back with the view bucket and scope out the deep areas. No embossing, but I'll take a pontil and an applied top seam-side any day. Beats nothing!

    Friggin' awesome creek finds, sandchip!

    I'm still waiting for my first pontil over here, so jealous. That flask is great too, nice colour. And they're both so clean, I guess we can thank Mother Nature's bottle tumbler for that. And call me crazy, but slicks are my favourite!

    You'd love my little town, then. I swear that it must've had an ordinance prohibiting embossed bottles back in the 1800s!

    Absolutely awesome finds. I can't wait until it's warmer out so I can walk the rivers. That's a nice puff. Being so thin it's amazing they survive in rivers. But what does the base look like on your seam side flask? Awesome finds.

    Thanks. I'm dying to get back in the creeks too, but just don't have the time right now. Here's a picture of the the base: smooth, unembossed, post-bottom mold.
