IRON PONTIL 1800's OLD DR. Townsend's Sarsaparilla - N.Bottle was blown in a mold and is stunning!! It is a beautiful BLUE/TEAL and has a GLOPPY applied lip. Townsend's stands a towering 9 1/2 inches tall and is 3 inches wide and deep. The glass is CRYSTAL CLEAR and super smooth, just stunning!!! The "New York" panel is slightly caved in adding great character! There is also an interesting elevated mold defect on the flat panel that adds additional character! There are a few waves in the glass panels from the manufacturing process that make it look crude.
There is a nice bubble on the New York panel and smaller bubbles scattered throughout. This bottle has not been tumbled and besides a little honest ware on the bottom, a few very very minor little scratches that you can barely see, and a spec or two of internal haze, there is no damage what-so-ever! This bottle is made of thick heavy glass and looks amazing in the sunlight as demonstrated in the photos!! These IRON PONTILLED Townsend's don't come up for sale that often!!
If you have been thinking about owning one of the best possible examples, this one is for you! THIS IS A TOP SHELF BEAUTY ALL THE WAY! Please see my other items.
