I have this bottle for quite some time, but I was never sure if it is an old one? The size is 7.5 cm. There are remains of snuff inside, basically that is what made me think that it could be an older piece... Thank you for any help!

This one looks to be made of resin rather than glass.. Can you confirm if it is glass ?

Thank you George, I tested it with a hot needle and you are right. I think I will leave my fingers from this kind of bottles until I have more experience.

Dear Mat,

     I was going to say that this bottle looked like it was made about 6 months before you bought it.
But George forestalled that. Roll Eyes Grin
Best,
