    Maine Apothecary

    I purchased this in Maine about 40 years ago. Corn flower blue ,3 piece mold bottle with paper lead acetate label. The lip is a very crude strip of glass. The bottom has a stone or sand inclusion. Is this a sand pontil. Any guess as to the age ?Thanks , Any help appreciated

    Beautiful bottle and what a great color. Can't say for sure whether or not it's pontiled from that picture. Not really seeing any sign of a sand pontil, but sometimes you have to have the bottle in hand to tell. Feel any gritty spots at all?

    Thanks for the info. Sandchip The bottom does not feel sandy so it must be just a 3 piece BIM. That rock inclusion had me questioning what it was.
