Hello, found this beautiful bottle..? It has a light mauve colour to it, and the shape is unique. It can't stand up, but what type of bottle is this? If it even is a bottle, or could it be from a light fixture? Found with items from late 1800's to early 1900's. It has a thread at the top, so it would be 1900's. Thank you.
I think it's possible that it could be an antique pendant light globe. They would thread into the light fixture. Maybe candy container, yes. Found other items in same area, cobbler made leather shoes, very old, turn of the century. Thank you for your help.
I'm siding with Canadian on this one. Looks like a candy container in the shape of a toy top. I'm not familiar with lightning rod pendants. Lightning rod globes are open on both ends for the rod to pass through the decorative glass piece. If anyone has pictures of a pendant in a lightning rod assembly, please post them. Neat find.
One time I saw a photo of an old ink bottle (I collect them) that looked like that. It was held upright in a wire holder that went around near the bottom. There is a place near the bottom of this one where such a wire holder could have wrapped around. But this is just a guess based on the pic I saw years ago.
