Adrian,
Thanks for sharing this. Iím wondering if the tube wasnít added later as some sort of reinforcing repair? Looks like your lip was damaged at some point?
Also, want to ask you about brick dust, if I bottle is scratched say on the lip, and contained brick dust, would it show orange? My brother has a bottle like this, and I wondered if this showed it was made out of some sort of ceramic or if itís what youíre describing? Iíll try and dig up a pic.
Cheers,
Rube

Adrian,

Another informative comparison, of nice bottles.
I especially like the wide mouth on the shorter bottle.

Cheers,

Peter,

I'm interested to see your pictures titled 20 bottles from Da Yong's House, but I'm unable to open these attachments, only the thumbnails appear.  Can you resubmit these?

Cheers,

Rube.

Thanks Joey! 

Too bad my grandfather didn't give it to my grandmother earlier than on their 25th wedding anniversary.  Maybe she would have
given birth to a son at some point, instead of three girls! Wink

Cheers,

Hi Everyone,

I've enjoyed reading thru this post, and will add yet one more to the fine bottles already exhibited.  It measures 2 1/16" and has a glass top.  Because of the thickness of the peanuts and bat relief carving, should I guess this to be a 20th century bottle? Also, the fact that the jujube striations stop short of the carvings? It was purchased in 1961.  Thanks for any comments!

Cheers,
Rube. 

PS- Steven, the wooden example is fabulous!
