The blue is spot-on as shown in the current ebay listing. The red here is perhaps a little light, or orangey, but is quite close; it could just be this example, though. The others I've seen have been a little darker red, less orangey, but not much. Also, in some others I've seen, the stripes have been pretty difficult to determine, very faint. I was just looking at the pontil photos on the piece currently listed on ebay, and noticed that the center pontil mark appears to have only one grind, and not a smaller grind inside a larger one. That would make this the first single grind I've seen. But, it looks like the base pushes upwards, as with the others I've seen. Maybe someday someone will come along with one with a label or signature, and put it to rest.
