Repro or Real?

This Bottle is a Reproduction


The pontil mark is molded into the base and not at all sharp.  The pebbly appearance is also molded to simulate a crude bottle.  This is a hard one because the lip looks right.  In early bottles the lip would have been applied and may appear to have been sheared as this lip does.  However, there is no mold seam on the lip which indicates that it was molded then reheated and made to look old.
