I'm not too knowledgeable about blown older galss. I wass wondering if anyone can give some information on the origin value and such, Thanx. Its a early free blown wine bottle with a string lip and a open pontil but thats all I know.

You have an early blown French wine. I would date it to 1780-1800 or so. It is interesting in that the string rim is a bit earlier and the body is a later form. That is why I would go with the later date. As for value, I see them sell in the range of $45-$85 when you look at ebay. If you are selling it, let me me know, I am interested.
