Firstly I have bought the bottle that originated this post and secondly it is my first bottle so whatever I say needs to be seen in that light!
I think the tinge is more on the green side than yellow. Especially viewed from the base/thicker part of the glass.
I will say Chinese looking at the canes and quality: the canes are the right colours, shape and size for Chinese. Quality wise the setup is off-centre, the pointel has been badly grinded and there are remnants of impurities, the stopper is a very loose fit and small for the overal design (not sure if this is typical of bottles or of Chinese ones or if the stopper was changed somewhere along the line). The long stem on the stopper did surprise me. On the quality issue, it immediately lets me want to attribute age (buyers optimism
) as the Chinese quality has become so much better in recent years, but having searched for info, I cannot find any record of how long bottles have been in production there?
Purist would not like this one!
I am as happy as a pig in the proverbial
. Thanks Lynne, and thanks to all those here as I knew what I was buying!!!
I finally have a botle in my collection...now where are those bar tools to bid on
