Interesting find from an antique store. Has a pontil bottom and crude flared finish

I’m not sure if is a genuine poison bottle but I can’t imagine somebody would go through the trouble nowadays to make it look like a really old one. It’s a heavy bottle with a skull and crossbones on it with “AOISON” under it. Just trying to see if anybody has ever seen one like this before.

I wouldn't do that. I have a dozen or more fantasy/repop/art bottles on our fireplace mantle. They make a nice arrangement. I think what I like about them is they do have great color. Not much value, but that's not why I have them.
Fair enough. I am disappointed it’s not an old one but I will hold onto it.

I'm no expert, by any means, but it looks fake to me. Intentionally, overly crude looking. If people think they can get thousands for a single bottle, they will make it worth their time to try. I wouldn't destroy it either, as it might be worth something, if not much, but someday. It does have a very nice color to it.
