Got this one at a flea market. Its about 6-8 in. tall with what appears to be a sheared lip that was refired. It is amber with many bubbles and has a hammered look. The odd thing is that the base has an immitation pontile mark and looks oddly imperfection-free. I'm really stumped on this one, the body and the base don't seem to add up. Any body know if this is a repro or not? Thank you!
