I found this piece in St. Thomas. Upon doing some basic research online, it looks like this may be pretty old. Any thoughts?

It is under direct light for the photos and it appears dark green. I can confirm it looks much darker, almost black, in person. It has a thick almost gritty texture and it is deceivingly heavy. No sharp edges; very rounded and safe to handle without fear of being cut. Also, not brittle. It feels like a stone. You could use this as a paperweight.

I was scouring through photos online trying to locate the same style bottle lip, but I could not find a match.

Thank you for your help!

Never seen a top or lip exactly like that one., the rough texture could be from being beat around in the sand & rocks for over 100 years. LEON.


P.S. Welcome to the site.
