    No Pontile on your cruet. This was pressed upside down and the base closed with the cut-shut technique. Excess glass was left when the plunger was withdrawn and it was then tooled over to close and any extra cut off.

    Thank you Mr Nesmith. Great information..now I’m off to look at cur-shut! I forgot to give dimensions . It is actually decanter..bottle size about 10 inches high. Thanks again..any idea as to age?

    I think your bottle dates to the mid 1800s and was probably a whiskey decanter.

    Very Nice.

    Thank you both! Looked up the cut-shut process. Very interesting as I’d not read about it before. This is a wonderful place to learn!!

    I would place it closer to 1900 mainly because pressed molded glass

    I'd opine that the applied ring of glass around the top/mouth puts it more nearer the mid 19th century than the end
