This is too bad..... I didn't think this bottle was ever one that would have to be reproduced with the ample supply of originals. I know it (USED!) to be about a $100 bottle, so it will be very interesting to see where this takes the market on this bottle.
Another observation I made looking at my originals VS this repro is that the originals have the mottled background in the inner circle of the logo, whereas the new junk ones appear to be smooth.

Thanks for the heads-up on this Standard oil bottle, Don. Who'd have ever thought this item would have been a repro "target". John
