I've tried to find information on this bottle for years with no luck. Please help if you know anything about it. Just message me to ask questions. It has a craft on the front a detailed strap down the sides. leather strapping on the rim. Green glass with wax holding on a leather?

Weird one. Can't tell if the bottom view is glass or something else.

I think it's a 20th century liquor bottle, probably European. If those are seams on the lip that I think I can see it confirms the date range. I suspect it was left to degrade in a barn or under a house or something, which explains the bad condition of the leather. Leather-covered liquor bottles were a bit of a fad in the mid-20th century.

I'm not sure how to preserve something like that honestly. And I'm afraid that no, there isn't any value to it. These things are quite common in perfect condition at thrift stores.
