    Is this a colonial Williamsburg repro

    Shaft and globe style European bottle with WM below a crown seal (William and Mary?) small kick up in base with solid broken pontil mark.I have already posted on UK bottle digging site and they came to the conclusion it was a Williamsburg repro, I have decided to post here as you folks may have already seen another one.

    It seems like something they could of made, or the Jamestown Glasshouse. The Williamsburg stuff is often marked CW. It doesnt seem to be a piece they currently make. Its hard to really tell much from that photo. If its a repro it looks like it was made pretty well. Show a photo of the pontil mark if you can and a close up of the seal.

    after seeing the bottom it appears to be a modern bottle but i cant say who made it at this point.

    If it is a modern bottle it was made in the United States as that is where I got it from, there must be others out there as surely it must be too much trouble to produce a one off, the seal stamping device would be far more costly to produce than the bottles value. I will be suprized and a little puzzled if no one has seen another. Thanks for your help and advice, opinions.

    Seems like they require you to be a member to view that post.
