Dr. Townsends Sarsaparilla Albany, N.Y. iron pontiled (blue/green)

Watching this stunning example of a Dr. Townsends Sarsaparilla on eBay. Besides being beautiful glass, it has the killer pontil that is similar to the pontil I wrote about last night. That bottle was thought to be a Dr. Townsend’s also. dendirtyd is a strong eBayer with a 100% feedback that I can vouch for. The pictures are stunning and great examples of how a bottle should be represented on eBay.
