The " Finished Product" is what is known as a " Lady's Leg" and is considered to be a brandy bottle. These are very collectable particularly in various colors known as a " color run". I have a few in my collection, some pontilled, in storage right now as I have downsized from a big house to a Mobile home.

This is just a display example.
I did this to a number of different bottles to display in my Bar.
That way if someone got drunk and in a fight and through a beer bottle and broke a handful of them, I would be only partially upset.
I had two "ladys legs" that were just like that.
And Bitters, Blob Sodas and Whiskeys with "repairs" similar.

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!

Well... I guess we don't all have your gluing skills - but you're the one who bought and paid for it.
