      Snapped off pontil marks

      This vase is my latest purchase that I am trying to date, based on the kick-up and snapped off pontil mark:

      Kick-ups

      I'm curious about kick-ups in old vases. I'd like to know what era these kick-ups indicate.

      Truffle bottles/jars

      Yet another glass object I am interested in that is difficult to research is the truffle bottle or truffle jar (I don't know which is the better or more correct term). Does anyone know anything about these? thanks

      The image below shows a truffle bottle being used as a tulip forcing vase.
