Time for an update
Been busy, but was able to snap some photos and do some quick editing.
I acquired these first three separately, all over the past few months.
The seller of this first one claims he got it from an estate sale. From what I gather, it's the older style, but who really knows I guess.
It's walls are slightly thicker, and the lid fits snugly deep in the bowl. That chop is difficult to read.
Here's a higher contrast, larger file to view. Anyone able to make it out?http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj86 ... 40chop.jpg
And here's the base. Link to more detailed, contrasted image below.http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj86 ... 41chop.jpg
And the guts. Love the blemishes on the base above and the inside.
