Hello, I have this Amber/Yolk colored Glass? Snuff Bottle Signed with seal, I was hoping to identify the maker and age of this piece, Its 2 1/2"inch tall x 2" wide and weighs 45.6 Grams, When you hold it up to the light you can see slight slag like white swirl patterns, From what I can see the whole is straight down and not hollowed inside, The man who I purchased this from said his father found it while digging some bullets metal detecting, Im assuming the mark will unlock the secrets of age/identify of maker and possibly material made from, It also reminds me of actual amber, Any help greatly appreciated!, Thank you all.

It is a possibility of being resin, it weighs a good bit for how small it is, any idea on the seal? Thanks for your help.

Welcome from me to, from the photos you posted I also think it looks like resin. The surface bubbles lead me to think this, but I would be happy to be proven wrong.

I agree with George and Jungle , the bottle  looks like resin especially when you noticed its heavy.
