In comparing botties remember if it is from a top quality maker you will not find slop quality on the rear end. I have not encountered Italian glass where the underside was left ground coarse, you will always see high gloss grind and polish. If you see a piece with a really course underside, or with a matt ground underside, I advise you to only acquire it if you know what it is you're handling.
