These bottles are part of a lot of over 300 found in a cellar in the Loire Valley. There were over 200 of these late slim flowerpot bottles along with some half bottles and magnums. Most have glass blowpipe pontil scars, a few have iron rod pontil scars. The string rims were mixed, V shaped and rounded. This is really the last evolutionary change that the Flowerpot bottle goes through before  going totally straight. Although the heights, widths and shapes varied little the weights and capacities varied considerably. The average measurements were taken on sets of ten bottles taken at random.
   Another thing that I have just noticed by looking at the pictures is that the glass is considerably thicker on the standard bottles than on the halves and magnums. The standard bottles are less transparent.
