Day 38-Rossini-Italian


At first glance, these water bottles look exactly like Kanawha water bottles and are usually offered for sale as Kanawha (or Blenko.)  A closer examination reveals that the tops are more slender and the spouts are smaller.  There is also a slightly enlarged ring around the top.  The mold line comes right up under the lip while Kanawha water bottles have the line end slightly lower on the neck.  The details of the ship are surprisingly more crisp than the Kanawha original.   The Italian ones come in amber, pale pink, green and blue.  Has anyone seen any different colors?
