I am trying to think why someone cut this…. And then glued it back on, really badly! This was in a lot of stuff from the auction. I keep picturing someone doing that to put on a bottle they broke, then trying to cut the broken one to fit, and busting it all up. Then forgetting they have the glueing skills of a 3 year old, trying to fix this one? Any ideas why?!

And that’s a weird base. I don’t think I’ve seen that before!

I'd typically expect to see this sort of thing when someone finds a rare bottle with the neck broken off, and then a neck from another example of the same bottle with the bottom broken off. Odd to see someone doing it to a bottle like yours though, even though it is a somewhat unusual shape it doesn't seem anywhere close to the sort of bottle that would be worth the effort. Maybe someone was doing it here as a practice attempt? I imagine if I was first learning to cut glass I wouldn't be doing it with bottles I cared about.

Practice! (They couldn’t do that on a Bromoseltzer or a lea perines or maybe a nice Ragu jar?) if this was in the expendable pile, I’d like to see their good stuff- (wait-maybe I have their good stuff too!). Thanks for the input!

My guess was that it was practicing with a couple of broken bottles they found, I think that's more likely than them cutting the neck off of an intact bottle and then sticking it back on.

This is a poorly done Frankenstein bottle?! Do these come out better than this for people? (I hope!?)
Sorry…. I’ve led a very sheltered life, here…. Self taught, (and I didn’t even think of that one, in 37 years!)

I think that base means that it was blown glass, maybe?

It's likely two broken bottles of the same type glued together. When done properly, with professional expertise and the right coloured epoxy rather than whatever glue they found kicking around under the sink, it can be very difficult to tell that the bottle was repaired at all without looking closely. Typically it's something you see on old pontilled soda bottles and that sort of thing.
