Glass Pinch Bottle

An unusually shaped bottle for modernity, but may not have been for the 18th Century.   This is a gourd-shaped colorless glass bottle with tooled trails on the sides and a thumb size pinch in the center sitting on a pad foot.  Possibly made in France.

H: 14.5 cm

Mid 18th C

Ref: Verre d’ usage et De Presige, Bellanger P. 379
