those are not pontiled bottles I'm afraid, you might be looking at the owens machine marks on the bottoms or something.

I believe these are pontil bottles, with the exception of the Spanada bottle. [:)]



Hey Liz,

I believe you're mistaking an Owens, or other early bottle machine valve mark for pontils. Lemme direct you to a wonderfully informative site; This One was written by one of our members. It will tell you much about the characteristics and attributes of these old bottles that we so love.

The aqua horseradish is the oldest of the lot, to my eyes. Is that little embossed guy in the front a screw top Horlick's? Collectorwise, we call the un-embossed guys, "slicks." Unless the slick is of an interesting color, or crudeness, these have little to no collector interest.

They'd be good candidates for some of your creative slumping, in my opinion.
