A portion of the cumulative result of picking up things that I find interesting. The "neatness" factor is always my primary guide for this cabinet.

If anyone here sees anything in these pics they would like an id or further info on, please feel free to ask, i will do my best to answer.

Thanks for looking,

    Thanks for the love ttomtucker and walksoftly.

    Walksoftly, I will get a closer picture of that item if you like, but I will tell you that this find took me the longest to identify of item I have dug. I thought it was a small, thread-less insulator as well, so I researched it as one.

    Turns out this is actually a slag glass automotive ash tray. there is a hole in the side that originally held a suction cup so it could be attached to the old metal dash boards on cars. Of course the rubber suction cup was long gone. Had me stumped for quite a while...


    Happy New Year All!

    love it -- like a flashback to my grandmother's bookshelves -- she loved to walk and collect -- usually along the oregon beaches where she lived -- i learned a lot of history from those bookshelves -- thanks for posting

    Zach, if you want bottles, join a bottle club in your area. e-Bay also has many bottles. I dig many of mine.
