    This is an old hand blown green bottle that has a very nice shape. It is about 10 inches tall and 3.75 inches at the top then it tapers down to 2.75 inches at the bottom. There's a chip around the outside of the rim and it looks like there was a bubble there at one time that was probably too close to the edge so it chipped out. It's too bad because otherwise it is in perfect condition. I know very little about glass so if anyone has any information that they would like to share I would be much obliged.
    Thanks

      Hey Vrgdc! Gourgeous gin bottle! All the information you could ever want on them can be found at historicbottles.com ran by Bill Lindsey.

      This is a link to its gin section;should be halfway down the page:

      P.s. you should put that in the Pontil bottled section as well. Very nice glass pontil scar on bottom

      Thanks Dredgedirty. I'll try to move it to the pontil section.
