    This stood out when I was in a charity shop yesterday. It's the colour of glass that I love when I see Vikman's posts and the burnt orange stylised bird only adds to the attraction for me. The stopper nowhere near fills the aperture yet the length makes me think it just may be origjnal to the flask. It could be Chinese for all I know, though it is nicely made. For instance the end of the stopper has a chamfered edge and the wall of the flask gets thicker towards the base thus counterbalancing the heavy stopper.

    If anyone recognises the flask and stopper I'd love to hear from you. If not it was still 50 pence well spent.

      I would not have left this either! It's pretty awesome.
      Looks beautifully made and I see where you are coming from with the Vikma reference.
      I'm thinking Skruff Glasbruk, Sweden, but it's a feeling only, not knowledge!

      50 pence - wowzer! It's beautiful. I think the stopper is original to the bottle too.
