DeepSeaDan,
Here's a thought, could it possibly be a sticky ball pontil? RED Matthew's talked about a sticky ball pontil somewhere on this forum. I believe they were pretty smooth. Maybe one of the pontil experts can chime in here... And yes that gall glass color is nice.... Roy
I had a look back - mine is similar to this one:

She certainly is a beauty! And as Roy said, it appears your analysis is pretty spot on. Now here's another question: Is this a pontil as well? Your bottle's pontil is obvious, but I'm not so sure about this one, though the gall glass is pretty cool...
English bottle with refired pontil and dates to around 1860
