"Orange Peel" effect on whiskey bases

The recent post on the possibly pontilled Hassmers and it's appearance made me think of other bottles with the same effect. You can't put photos in responses, so I have to make another post on this thing. This first mold Circle Cutter has the same look, with bumps and sand grain like appearance to the base. I'm certain that this look is only the result of hot glass contacting a only partially heated or "cold" mold. The entire bottle is also wrinkled and hammered to the hilt.
