Very nice, big-bellied green glass onion bottle, Holland, early 18th century. The traditional character of the bottle is enhanced by the imperfections in the shape of the belly and the placement of the neck. The fact that the bottle is almost as wide as it is high gives it a very nice character.
An onion bottle is an antique wine bottle. In the early 18th century, wine bottles were not as elongated and cylindrical as they are today; they were also not stacked horizontally. The bottle has a conical neck with an irregular lip and a wide, deeply retracted kick (the "sphere" at the bottom of a wine bottle).
The bottle is still in good condition, given its age. At the top of the lip there are 3 tactile chips, and the belly has a small star-shaped damage (see photo), but it is hardly visible in the dark glass.
