    I found this bottle in the Sacramento Area. It appears to be an opium bottle from about 1870 (?). The bottle is very crudely made and could be older but I have no way of telling. It comes from Hong Kong. If anyone knows more about these bottles that would be great. The bottle is 2" square and 3 1/4" high, green glass with lots of imperfections and air bubbles.
