I don't know anything about the piece, There is marking on the glass on the bottom but it is obscured by the metal wrap. It's approximately 9" high and 4" wide.
I bought it in Long Island, NY at a random antique shop. I could never figure out it's purpose as the top unscrews. There is random black residue that comes out if the piece is open and upside down.
I would love to know anything about this piece.

    To add to AR8Jason, can you tell us what the first few letters are on the bottom, try magnify glass. Dave

    It looks like maybe there is a piece missing to it? As though the screw-off part not attaches to the vial on one end, and attaches to something else on the other end?

    I was thinking perfume vial and the attached piece is a dipper, but the ends both seem to screw onto something?

    I just added a picture of some similar bottles that I have. I took pictures of the nozzle looking thing that screws on too. Maybe we can figure this out...
