Dear members,

I noticed this bottle generated some interest on eBay (auction is now over). The seller claimed it was chalcedony and late 19th/early 20th Century, but it looks like opaque glass to me. Can't comment on the age though. Anything of interest here?

Thank you,

Brian

It is chalcedony but the shape suggests it is a new(er) bottle, and probably machine carved and hollowed.

Based on the first two views, I'd have said glass or even Jade.
But based on the last view, I must say I agree with Pat, but also with Pin.
It IS nicely done.
Best to all,
Joey
