I have an light olive chestnut, lots of bubbles, but it has much more wear to the bottom. Yours and the ebay one don't appear to be old to me, sorry but I believe they are repros. They don't look right to me. Just my two cents.

Not true, had a friend find four swirls in an old barn on a 1790s farm property that were mint. They are out there, but odds are we won’t find them.

DEH - I know where there is one of these but some dumbass drilled out the dime sized pontil.....to make a lamp?
Swirl is from shoulder up and same color as yours.
Has more of a triangle shaped finish like seen on most demijohns.
I was gonna get it but with the pontil drilled I'm sure it's junk or even a re-pop?

Referring to this you posted above.
