Nope, it's not a great rarity
but I am as excited about this piece of glass as I have been
about ANY bottle for quite some time. When discovered (in a basement
no less) the piece was covered with decades of grime and it wiped
clean to reveal what I would argue is as good or better than
any example of this mold I have ever encountered. The color and
whittling make this bottle extraordinary indeed!
