Here are new images of an early brandy bottle. I'm guessing it contained brandy, a high value commodity, because of the lead used to seal the bottle mouth. But, that's just a guess. It's more certainly a French lip finish.

This bottle strikes me as a transitional form, as bottles became less onion-like and more like the tall, slender cylinders which we see today.
