Not many bottles being posted recently so I thought I would post this one which was one of a lot of 5 I recently purchased.

The colour combination appealed as it is more unusual. Height at 7.7cms makes it my tallest overlay. I've never seen scales depicted as on this although I have seen these stars used on the bodies of deer. Slight chip to the base rim which wasn't evident from the limited pictures but a nicely worked bottle. The spoon has been broken and the stopper is swirled glass.

Regards, Adrian.

Nice bottle! I have never seen that star detail before on fish either.
Thanks for sharing it.
