The only bottle I picked up at the West Michigan bottle show.
C. 1720-1760 "Dutch onion" bottle like that which Jack Sparrow might have drank from if he were real.

It features an amber swirl wrapping around it two and a half times from an inclusion in the neck which is next to a large bubble.

Clean as a whistle but not tumbled as it still shows heavy base wear .

Made for the "Dutch market" in Belgium or Germany, according to Van den Bossche. My understanding is that these straight-sided, bright green onions are German in origin, but it's uncertain. Yours is an excellent example!

My example is loaded with surface flaws -- ripples and adhesions, though the lip is precisely finished.
