Our Friend and Utah crockery expert Dave Emett has passed away.
Over the years he has contributed volumes of research on Utah Bottles and the history. He has been a friend to all who knew him and will be missed. So long Dave!
Sometimes the items you dig up capture your attention and makes you wonder. To me, now more than ever I want more information on who they were, where they were and what happened to them. One of the diggers shared some recent finds with me and I had to know more. So, we have new History stories.

I found this fragment in a water pit and couldn't find any more pieces. It appears to be a turquoise, back bar, barrel whiskey. Some have said it may have been a keg with a spigot at the bottom and a wide mouth top. If you have any information or even a similar example of this type of bottle, please CONTACT ME.
An amazing site on Hutch Sodas. We are looking for some photos to help complete the project. Go HERE to see the list of Utah hutches.
This is the world's ugliest Lea and Perrins. It could be the world's ugliest old bottle. It has a runny top so it is probably from the 1870's. No, it is NOT painted. Thisis what the soil in Utah's ghost towns will do to a bottle. If you have anything uglier, I would be interested in seeing it. Please send me a photo..
