George,

I like the overall form and style of this one. Even the foot rim looks convincing. A pity is isn't black nephrite!
You don't say how tall it is.

Does the inside of the mouth show any join marks ?



I don't think so... But could be mistaken about that.

Change the stopper, and this bottle would make a perfectly presentable "shelf filler" in a display cabinet.

Dear Tom,

     I was thinking, "A pity it is not Rhinoceros horn!". From 1970 till I stopped collecting all materials in 1991 or 1992, I looked hrd for a carved bottle in rhino horn but never found one I could afford that was 'right' (and didn't find all that many anyway).

    This looks like what I would have wanted. Oh well... Cheesy
Best,
Shabbat Shalom,
Joey
