    Default FYI about Georgetown G5 scuttles

    I'd been wanting a nice scuttle lately and haven't wanted to spend the long buck just to see if I'd like it. The cold Vermont winters demand hot lather. On a whim I called Georgetown Pottery to inquire as to whether they had seconds of their G5 scuttle. They do, in several colors, priced at $30 rather than the list of $45 (plus $11 shipping). Mine arrived the next day! No waiting. If there is a flaw or blemish that makes it a second, it's not of any significance. I'm pleased.

    So if anyone's interested. You've got to call and ask them. I think it's a good deal.

    Cold vermont winters? Oh stop it!

    I've been living in Vermont for about 6 months so this is only my first winter but boy is it mild up here this year!

    I must have brought the warmer weather up with me from southwestern Virginia, you're welcome!

    Yup, this is the mildest winter I can recall (still needed the generator for 4 different storms). But never turn you back on a VT winter Matt. I've been a New Englander for 60 yrs. When we get 30" of snow in May I'll lend you my scuttle!!

    Yup. Just ordered one. Thanks for the tip--I've long wanted a G5 but the full retail kept me away.

    PICS? come on really guys...you buy a new scuttle and describe it

    let's see a dry shot or lather shot?

    nice pickup, the G5 is a fine looking piece.

    ps...i'm just busting your chops about the description, but a picture would be sweet.

    Hamada/persimmon!
    Fwiw the very helpful woman who helped me said there were seconds available in almost every glaze, and that from the Hamada/Persimmons she'd "pick out beautiful one" for me. Thanks again...

    Very nice. Looks similar to my old G5 that I sold awhile back.

    Whereabouts in VT are you?

    Whatever the flaw is that makes it a second, it's minor enought to not matter to me. I think it's a spot or 2 that is considered a flaw in the glaze.
