Hi,
It is about 10 inches high. Sharp pontil. Wavy glass with color graduating.
I can't find seams but I really don't know much about bottles.
Thanks for any insight.
I'm inclined to agree with Canadian Bottles. It appears to be a modern art piece. The smoothly ground base appears to have been produced on a fine-grit belt sander.

Looks like modern bottle, nice looking.
I have to ask is the pontil a hole, because it looks like you see through bottom into the bottle's side ?

I think he meant how it is sheared and rolled outward, while the Tippecanoe top is applied. There's also the extremely rare blue "Dr. Henion's Sure Cure for Malaria" with the same top.

Huh. This cobalt bottle is so rare I can't find anything about it on-line. Are you confident that this is not a fantasy bottle? I see the image is from a Norm Heckler auction catalog -- which one?
