Thanks Harry ; Does The Chianti Bottle Have a Pontil Mark The bottles are older bottles .the big round ball with a neck the mold line marks don't go to the top .and it has an applied crown .The Spanish Wine Server Is Hand Blown And The Other Parts Have Been Added After The Main Part Was Blown. It Has A Flap On The Bottom. Of The Bottles. Sorry I Didn't Show The Bottom Of The bottles The Big Round One Has The Flap A Little Higher On The Bottle .My Photos Were Not Too Good .But Thanks A Lot .

What do you mean by flap? That wine server is super nice. That other one looks like a nurser. I truly feel it is wine related. Baby wino? Bad joke, great stuff Grace!

Strange... I was given the exact Italian wine server 2 weeks ago. The tied plugs are original except the top is missing the plume, it's been cut off. I assume the cup in the side is for ice to chill the wine. Since I don't drink wine I'm using it for water in the fridge, it works great.

Unfortunately there are no pontil scars on any of those bottles. They are far to recent for that.
I think what you are refering to as a pontil is simply the mold seam on the base of the bottle.
And they never closed the bottom of a bottle when blown. I would suggest doing a little reading
on how bottles are made. The reason a bottle has a pontil scar is. That this is how the bottle was
held by the glass blower while the lip was applied. Or a handle if that was needed.
