Well this is better than nothing. Today was a complete bust except for this. A little 5 1/2" square dark green glass bottle. The neck has a flared thick top and maybe had a stopper, It has a very interesting feel like it's oily. Somewhat iridescent looks almost black till the light shines through it. The thing that intrigued me was the mark and all the numbers on the bottom. Which would indicate maybe something that's not your ordinary bottle. The mark itself is a circle with a "V" in the middle. Within the "V" is what looks like a "W" or an "N" On each side of that are a "3" and an "A" The numbers on the one edge are "25 c 1345" and something else I can't read clearly. Thinking caps please.... need this mark ID'd -Mike-
NOTE: Mystery Solved ! I even added the smallest of the 3 green glass stoppers I had posted earlier. A perfect fit,the right proportions and a bit of contrast too !
Here's some background on Vetri Speciali courtesy of thier website :
Pergine Valsugana (TN)
The unit in Pergine Valsugana, Trento, is a tradition by now. Established in 1974, formerly known as Nord Vetri, this is the “smelting furnace” that marked the beginning of our great adventure in the production of special bottles. This is, as a matter of fact, the birthplace of the famous Vetro Antyco, synonymous with classy containers
