2 3/8" tall, chalcedony with pink tubular structured inclusions. Four clawed dragon chasing a flaming pearl in the clouds. Carved in low relief through out the entire bottle including the base of which the dragon tail is wrapped and used for standing the bottle.

Best guess, 1780 to 1880.

Another difficult chalcedony to photograph.
