Dear YT,

A bottle can loosely be described as a container with an opening through a small neck. Less loosely it implies that it should be capable of holding a liquid. That we apply the term 'bottle' to a container for dry powdered tobacco is in itself a paradox. So I would not be over-worried about calling your copper object a bottle.

But if we want to be pedantic, we should perhaps describe it as: a bottle-shaped case for a snuff dish.

Dear YT,

      He called it a "snuff bottle shaped snuff dish carrying case". It's a very interesting object.
Best,
Joey
