A Couple of Early Ones

Here are two nice and early Goldrush era gin's which were recently found. The Club House is smooth based, and the Charles' is open pontiled.It is amazing that a few of these early bottles make it through 150 years in the ground least these two made it!

  1. Unscathed squares are getting scarcer by the day. Many thousands were sent to High Country mining camps and few survived. Most have lain on, or very near, the surface and suffered the effects of 140+ yrs of freezing and thawing, leaving little else but sharded remains. They have to have remained either top down or at least a foot under the forest floor to survive intact. Those are both outstanding examples of very nice Gold Rush glass.
