Historical Flask? Reproduction?

I found this bottle last weekend at a yard sale and it appears to be a handblown historical flask with a flared mouth and a polished bottom. It has lots of wear on it but I can't find a similar bottle in any of my books or anywhere on the internet. One side looks like a soldier or hunter holding a rifle and the other side looks like a wolf or a dog. Has anyone ever seen a bottle like this? Is it a reproduction?
Thanks for the help!botl1.jpgbotl2.jpgbotl3.jpg

I am fairly sure that is Scandinavian...definitely European. I think they date to the 1880's or 1890's. Pretty bottle and does have some value...I usually see variations of them pull $50-100.
