I am starting to see at an alarming rate cheapley made reproductions which still look good enough to fool a novice.
Add this one to the lists of type to avoid.Wrong color green and belt sanded wear are must things to avoid.Also the poorly made applied tops are a dead give away as the original gaffers were able to use much less glass.The day one of these idiot glass blowers in Mexico or China gets good at what he does is the day this hobby will change forever http://cgi.ebay.com/LARGE-VINTAGE-ROLLED-LIP-GREEN-SWIRL-HAND-BLOWN-BOTTLE-/170550431346?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item27b5990e72

The word "vintage" has got to be the most misused word on fleabay.
In the words of Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word. I do not think it means, what you think it means ...[:D]

Went back to look at it and found that the listing (170550431346) has been removed, or this item is not available.
