The last few times out all I've found that that is worth picking up is little knick-knack things like buttons and marbles, pins and odd shaped items. Maybe I'm being a little more selective! I did manage to pick up some nice pipes, one that is quite long. I picked up a little over 100 pieces of slipware to add to my soon to start table. With about 825 pieces I think I'm ready to begin, once I find the right table that will withstand the weight of the slipware and the weather conditions outside.
Any ideas you might have as to what you see is appreciated, as some of the items is guesswork.
4 Buttons, all different material
Mother of pearl
A full wig roller. First one I've found complete, usually broken in half. about 3 inches long, clay
used for heavier materials. Metal object reminds
me of aviator wings. In process of cleaning!
slipware 75 pieces
banded slipware, mocha ware
old sewer, water runoff from city. To dark inside to venture in, maybe some real treasures inside!! Too spooky for my courage level.
Finally some decent pipes, just need some tobacco..
That's the story of the last few trips to the river. Spring is here, the days are longer, the weather warmer, maybe the hunting will improve. I am moving up river maybe next time to try out another area.
