    too bad we didn't know who purchased it so they could be alerted to the fact they paid way more than they should have and maybe they would create sales trouble for the seller.Joel

    I would think it could have been flint. It is a rare bottle indeed. That is the problem of people trying to induce color, they change otherwise, valuable collectors items into junk.

    figural cologne pontil going cheaply

    No not an alteration but tooled that way. It is a variant. That particular style did come with a flared lip, though. It is the one with the pillars and I believe a hunter with a staff. I can't even remember the name of the bottle. They say the mind is the first thing to go.Joel
