Today I went hunting for Italian Ceramics! I was hoping for a donkey! haha! but they are not so easy to find! I only found these two bottles! A shark, probably not old or special at all, but I wonder what was in it? Shark oil? I bought shark oil in Mexico once, The other bottle is Milano wine, hand blown, maybe, Irattilli blanca Milano? The shark says on bottom MOD. DEP. 50 MM Italy A 3 750MM and a VP or unreadable in the center? Well I have my 1 and only shark bottle! maybe put olive oil in it!! How cool is that! thanks for looking!

    Thank you ! I like the shark! I will keep olive oil in it! The other bottle is thick and a little old maybe 1 litre. it has bubbles and is kind of cool also!

    I can't help but feel obliged but to toss out warnings when people show an inclination to actually use an older item...... but i am a practicing stick in the mud... they might contain lead that might leech out with something stored in them for long periods of time. they are great pieces though. I really like the green one.

    Thanks to both of you, yes maybe they contain lead! the green one is wine, and the other is? Maybe I will not use!! Thanks for information!!

    I have a shark bottle like that. You are right, not very old, but very cool. It's a Bellini Bianco Tavola bottle. Got mine at a thrift store, but you can find them new here...
