Well I cant believe the way the day ended today. Got out after work for a few hours. Grabbed my waiters and jumped in the river 5 minutes from home. Was only hoping to find some 20s and 30s beer bottles of which I found three. Got a Val Blatz, Miller and a Foss-Schneider from Ohio. The Miller and Foss were firsts for me. Also got a post hutch style E.L. Husting. Not sure the proper name for this style. Also a first.

I was not expecting to find this beautiful cobalt L. Werrbach & Co blob top soda bottle. I was so shocked just to see it laying in the shallow water fully exposed. Completely forgot to take an insitu pic. Definitely now my most favorite bottle in my collection. Cleaned up very well but I plan on having this one professionally tumbled by a friend. The sun was setting and it was getting harder to see so I called it a day after that. I'll absolutely be going back to this stretch of the river. Barely scratched the surface.

Enjoy some pics. Happy hunting everyone.

Now that is a bottle that is worth a special spot in the display.
Congrats πŸ‘
Thanks Smokey! This one is top shelf in the living room display. Not hiding this one in the basement.

Killer Cobalt!! Congratulations!
I would think that Amber one is pre hutch transitional, not post hutch :dontknow:
Thanks Steve. You know I think you may be right about that. I need to do some research. It does have the shape of a stoneware bottle more than anything.
