Answer to question:This "line" is actually multiple green glass threads that were dripped across the handle when the green glass prunts were applied.
These "lines" or "threads" are characteristic indications of fact this is a hand built, hand blown piece.
You will see loss to the upper green glass ring at two points, the only damage.
This piece is 140 to 170 years old and, actually in very good condition.
