This is the last one I want to share for the moment, it is a simple bottle. I bought it because I like the color and the shape. Height is about 6.5 cm (a guess, I forgot to take measures). The stopper is not original, as the spoon was cut down a bit to fit in the bottle. It shows quite some traces of wear, lots of small scratches on the surface (which cannot be seen in the pictures) and ome small chips on the handles. The bottom is convex and the mouth slightly concave towards the hole... The white remains in the hole on the mouthrim arer remains of museum putty a previous owner used... Again the question is, could it be an older bottle? I found the shape on some old examples, and the color too, even it seems to be a bit unusual.
Thank you once again for any comments!
Matthias

Dear Matthias,

      It could be old (ca. late 18th -mid 19th C.), or later, but the colour is totally right for an earlier bottle. The shape looks good as well.
Best,
Joey

Matthias,

This bottle is making me thirsty for a mocha!  I really like it's simplicity.

Cheers,

Rube.

Dear Rube,

      Yes, it does have that colour.
I'm going to have a 'Yotvata' Ice Coffee in the same colour.  Grin
