This old bottle free blown bottle tilts to one side at one quadrant and has a uneven rounded base and tooled top that is also distinctly uneven. The glass is a very very dark green black mixture but mostly black in appearance.The bottle has a dimpled, bumpy texture on the main body and has many pronounced wipe marks throughout. There are circular marks in different spots on glass that you can see in photos but do not appear to the naked eye. The inside tooled applied top has deep claw like vertical marks on the inside all the way around the inside opening and some residual cork on inside.
There IS A TIGHT SPIDER CRACK IN GLASS that can be seen when shining a light through opposite side, you can see the crack line in 2nd picture the bottle is structurally sound as the glass is very thick. The spider is above the deep scratch like mark on one side of bottle and there is a tiny flake of glass where this scratch line is.A wonderful old bottle with incredible character and OOAK! Bottle stands 9 1/4" tall x 3 3/4" - 3 1/4 across bottom depending on where you measure. Top opening is approximately 7/8.
The iron pontil kick up base sinks in approximately 2 1/2 deep. My guess is it holds approximately 1 quart. Please view all pics and read full item condition.
