I bought this bottle about 25 years ago.
The man I bought it from said he got it with a lot of other bottles but knew nothing about this one. He said he would sell it for $5.00 because he had no idea how old it was or where it was from. I've enjoyed it for a long time but still don't know anything about it. Hopefully someone on this forum can help me out with this one. Roy
Mystery solved.

While at the Merrimack Valley Bottle Show I found and bought another bottle very similar to this one. After a bit of research and following some dead ends I contacted the expert and now I know exactly what I have.
Phil Culhane of www.saddleflasks.com
has identified both of these bottles as Persian.
My original bottle that I bought somewhere between 25 and 30 years ago, I believe was made in the 1800s.
My new addition I believe was made earlier in the 1700s. Only real difference is that one has a buffed top. Hard to exactly date Persian bottles due to our current relations with IRAN (formerly Persia), and their lack of documentation.
Here are both bottles together.
