Dear All,

I would appreciate if you could share your thoughts regarding dating this snowflake obsidian bottle.

It measures 5 cms.

Thanks a lot,

Marcos

Hi Marcos,

An attractive material. Snowflake obsidian is one of the novelty stones which began appearing in the second half of the 20th century. Always difficult to judge bottles from a few photos, without actually handling the piece, but I'd say yours is one of the better ones from this period.

Hi Marcos,

    You really need to correct the size of the photos. I can't get the bottle on my screen, because of the large size.
Best,
Joey

Dear Tom,

Thank you so much for your help.

Dear Joey,

Sorry about the oversized photos. I will reduce them in future posts.

Best Regards,

Marcos

Dear Marcos,

  I appreciate it. I like to give my 'two cents' worth of opinion, but if I can't see the whole bottle, I've no way to give the least judgement.
Having said that, I usually agree with Tom L., Charll and George on hardstone bottles.
Best,
Joey
