No Way - NOT made in 1710 - I contacted the seller and educated him the best I could - which he thanked me for and admitted he was not an expert and knew very little about bottles, and just assumed 1710 was a date. He also said that he was going to revise the listing and include some or all of the information I shared with him - which is that I believe the bottle is of European origin (Crown finish is "sloppy") and was most likely made in the early 1900s or 1920s. The V on the base is also a clue, and could very well be the mark for the Vetreria Etrusca Glass Company located in Italy. I suspect the 1710 is either a mold or style number - definitely not a date.

This link is to a brief history about the company ...
