Another super item.

I'm not a big collector of Isle of Wight glass generally speaking, however, I would guess that your bottle could date from any time between the mid 70s to around 1980ish. Sure someone will confirm the date. The signature is a very desirable addition.

Does the base have a flame pontil mark..?

I can't make it out! Is it blue and white swirls? Is it blue and clear swirls ? or is it Seaward? (blue and green swirls and bubbles)
Does it have a flame pontil mark or does it have the coach-bolt mark?
Or is it even an Aurene piece?

Is it a flat bottle or a rounded one?

You're going to have to help me out here re the pontil mark. Looks kind of like a button to me if that makes you any the wiser.

When you see flat or rounded, do you mean the base?

As for the colour (apologies for poor photo) it's blue swirls with white in the stopper and some white at the very top of the bottle.

Will try and get a better picture for you.
Many thanks, Anthony

Hi,

Could you take a shot of the whole base and a shot of the bottle from the side without the elevated photo angle.

Thanks

Thanks.

I think that looks like the 'coachbolt' pontil mark. If so this would date it slightly earlier than I first thought, around 1973.

Not sure about the pattern/ range, sure someone will confirm soon.
