This unique 8 sided bottle seems to always feel cold and it’s very heavy. It is 7 1/4″ tall and not flat on the bottom so it sits at a bit of an angle. The color is as shown, a very rich deep cobalt. It is impossible to photograph the embossing as hard as I tried. The base is recessed and smooth. The smoothed pontil mark has retained most of it’s iron. This is really interesting (see picture). Here is a wonderful web site I found to explain this. There is the slightest dink that you can put your fingernail in which cannot be felt running your finger over the top and another tiny ding on the side. Otherwise it’s perfect.
The embossing reads:
J. Boardman – New York – Mineralwater (one word) – Star This Bottle is Never Sold.
