The iron pontil (I used to always refer to it as graphite). The glass is dark amber (almost a black glass appearance).

Most Udolpho's have the word aromatic?

I was told by a collector that the bottles embossed with the lower case letters in the words "Schiedam Schnapps", are the oldest variants. I have kept my eyes out and I don't see many of them.

Stunning Rob, Ron (bearswede (https://www.antique-bottles.net/forum/showprofile.asp?memid=2587)), RIP, would have loved it too. Top shelf for sure.
I have a couple run of the mill but I still consider them beautiful.

That's beautiful. I haven't seen a nicer one ever I'm my opinion... The schnapps only do not turn up to often, and it's possible there was a counterfitter or a change in the proprietor, i never looked into it though... I'd be stoked to dig that

That is one of best (if not the best) I've ever seen.
You really hit the mother lode on this one.
Great and unusual embossing, the glass is just textured and whittled and you can't beat that pontil.

That is a real beauty, Rob. The texture in the glass along with the rich amber color makes me think of a nice, old dark hardwood floor. Iron pontiled, to boot. Very nice. ~Jim

I wanted to thank everyone for there comments. One last note on this Udolpho - it is also the largest that I have seen, standing 9 7/8" tall and 3" wide.
