Double Pontiled Greeley’s Bourbon Bitters

Enjoyed looking at your recent post on color run of Greeley’s. Especially liked the plum colored variant. Overall, very nice run. I thought you and your readers might be interested in a “pontiled” Greeley’s I’ve owned since the 1970s. Yes, it is pontiled, although Ring/Ham does not list this G101 variant. I have attached photos. It has a double pontil just like my O45 aqua Old Sachem as seen in the attached photo. The Greeley’s stands about a one-half inch shorter in height than typical Greeley’s. I always assumed the Greeley’s was made by a glassblower practicing his art early on. Any thoughts on your part?
