    Re: Davidoff Zino -- Love, and History

    I just received a Zino bottle with script lettering (calligraphy lettering) but no mention anywhere that it was distributed from Lancaster (as you can see attached), what do you make of it?

    That's right but you still get many written variations on base of calligraphy lettering bottles(see attached in my previous post).. Not sure which is original/vintage 80's bottle.
