Its beautiful Teiste. Use it well. I have a G4 which is decorated with my cats on either end. I use it for display purposes only.

very nice, but i don't believe it's a G5. the G5 has the round opening for water and a rubber stopper and lather webbed ridges

here is my G5...

the GT scuttles (regardless of generation) are great. i use mine for larger brushes as a brush scuttle and also as a bowl scuttle.

thanks...i have this and a DB1.5.

i actually like the look of the GT better, but the bowl scutlinging the DB. i did a side by side here somewhere.

ps...the pics from tieste are amazing. i think the G4 is better looking (without the stopper and the wide water opening) then the G5 Tongue

I think GT has by far the best looking scuttles. I only wish they would make the clay walls a bit thicker, and hold a bit more hot water. JMHO

They are beautiful.

I totally agree with you Bob. My G4 is very heavy but holds a small amount of water. Not a very efficient design.

I had one of the first GT scuttles ever sold to the public some years back. It was the most beautiful of all my scuttles , but as has been said it kept the lather warm more than hot. Lost among mentions is the Schwarzweisskeramik Scuttles. They have worked best for me keeps the lather hot. Price wise they are more expensive though.

Agreed - I think they're the most beautiful scuttles out there but for functionality I picked the DB after doing quite a bit of research.

Also, the DB is made by hand on a potters wheel (per the video in another thread). When I was researching I saw the GT were made in molds, which turned me off a bit.

One of those ymmv things.

personally, i like the look of the G4 shape, style, more then the G4 and new G20.

it's sleak, clean and i'm not a fan of the cork in the new ones.
