Mold Blown "Organic" Design Glass Bottle Decanter
« on: September 16, 2012, 04:27:44 PM »
I found this bottle or jug at a thrift store and picked it up because it was hand blown (pontil mark on bottom) and its organic or ergonomic design.  I really don't know much about mold blown bottles or how to date them.  It has seems running up the sides and I guess maybe this was blown into a sand mold?  Maybe someone could enlighten me.  The glass has a yellowish cast to it, so maybe this is some type of recycled glass.  I'd like to get someone else's perspective.  Thank you.

This is very recent - right now there is one in every charity and thrift shop in the western world. No idea who was the lucky producer though....

Really?!?!?  Am I the first to buy one and post it in the forum?  No offense, but your reply is a bit dismissive.

Yep, seen them about too but never bought one. They kind of look like they belong in a hospital ward to me. ;)

It looks a bit like a slumped Orangina bottle.  :)

Just spotted a red one in our local recycle shop priced at 1 euro so I checked the underside. To me it looked like a made-in-India finish.
