Once in awhile you come across a bottle with beautiful swirls of color throughout. It indicates that the glass was not fully "mixed" to it's intended blend of color. I have seen some spectacular swirled bottles, and Marty Hall had a wild display of unembossed bottles with this effect at the Reno National Show. Here is a pretty straight up olive yellow green bitters with ribbons of red amber spiraling throughout, from the top to bottom, and all the way around. While from a distance this effect tones down the "green", in backlighting it is really something. Unfortunately, my camera was not able to capture the swirls as dramatic as in person, but you get the idea. Maybe others could post their "swirled" glass?
