It's 7 inches tall, think glass.
The top part of the neck is less polished than the rest.
U can see it better at the right side on the #2.
The mold seams end where get to this part but there's no any tool mark around it.
I think it loosed some polish and the hard-to-see mold seams due to it was introduced in the oven to re-heat before apply the top.
It contained perfume? Liquid sauce?

That's a nice find! I'm thinking it was likely a fancy peppersauce bottle. I've seen olive oil bottles in a similar shape too but never one as ornate as yours.

Nice looking bottle. I too think it might be a pepper sauce. But it also looks like it could possibly be an olive oil.

Lip says 1880s-1890s to me. But isn't that a pontil scar on the base?
As for use, I'd say . . . I really don't know. Most resembles an olive oil, but I've never seen one like that.
