The pontil marks on the Whitney made versions are usually quite large.

The GI-103 The Whitney glass works was again chosen by the Mckearins as the factory for the manufacture of this one because of its similar look to the GI-102.This bottle like all the other Jenny Lind calabash flasks has a portrait of Jenny but it does differ from the similar GI-102 in the clothing that Jenny is depicted as wearing.This bottle also has the misspelling of the word Jenny Lind as JENY LIND across the top of her portrait also. The other side of the bottle although similar to the GI-102 has the same factory building depicted but lacks any written words across the top of the factory depiction.The sides of the bottle have eleven vertical ribs.This bottle also has a rough pontil mark and comes in Cornflower blue Aquamarine,and is very rare in light blue.

Like the GI-102 the 103 usually has a large pontil mark.

The GI-104 Obviously a mold was sold to the Ravenna Glass Works by the same person who designed the Whitney molds or two different mold makers went to the same grammar school and misspelled the name Jenny as JENY again on this one.!! I doubt this happened and I lean towards the same mold maker being deficient in his grammar selling two different but very similar molds to each factory.The one main area of difference in the flasks that sets the glass works in Ravenna Ohio apart from their Southern New Jersey counterparts is that the flasks made in Ravenna have a blob shaped collar or top verses the more standard LTC ( Long Tapered Collar ) seen on the New Jersey made ones.One side of the bottle has a portrait of Jenny Lind and the inscription above the portrait JENY LIND .

Jenny's clothing is quite similar to the Huffsey made versions then it is to the Whitney's.The other side has a very similar Glass factory design like all of the others previously discussed and is completely void of any inscription above the factory.The sides of the bottle have eleven vertical ribs.This flask is only seen with the large disc shaped Iron pontil mark. The colors this flask were made in are Sapphire-Blue,Clear-Light Blue,Bluish-Green,Clear Brilliant amber,Yellow-Green,Pale-Green,Aquamarine, and Cornflower blue. The flask is listed as common by Mckearin, but just like the supposed common Huffsey made GI-99 this flask is only common in Cornflower blue and is quite rare in the other listed colors and commands prices sometimes near 10 and 15,000 dollars.
