This has always been one of my favorites from my collection, im not sure what it might have contained but always loved the story that came with it, the fellow i got it from was super cool, looked and talked like he was ready to grab one of the surf boards on his wall and hit the waves. He told me him and a buddy were finding bottles at the bottom of the ocean while diving at freeport harbour in the bahamas in the 70's, i always figured it was thrown off a ship back in the day since they just dumped over the side in those days. Its about 8 inches tall, beautiful cobalt blue, i hope you all enjoy, if anyone has any ides what it had in it id love to hear.

Wow that's very cool! I've never seen anything close to that before. It's somewhat reminiscent of a snuff bottle, in a very vague way, but I have no idea if that's anywhere near the mark. Considering the maritime history of the Caribbean it could have come from practically anywhere in the world as well, which complicates things.

This seems to fit into category of "food jar." I can offer nothing more specific. The blue color is unusual -- I have only seen similar jars in colorless/aqua glass. I have seen these on British websites, but I recovered one in a Florida river. (French and English glass was commonly used in Florida at this early date.)
