This was bought many months ago for around $40. A octagonal wine bottle. It really struck me how interesting this bottle looked and I knew it was very old too. A small piece of paper stuck to the bottle reads that it is from Austin, Texas. I read “Nun’s Wine Bottle” (?)“Austin Texas”. I can’t definitely put a date on this. It isn’t pontiled, but does have a very interesting base to it. It is slightly whittled, so that puts it before 1895ish. It almost even looks European. Applied top is masterfully put on, and I do hear the Europeans were great at making bottles. It has a truly, beautiful, emerald green color to it. Seam ends at the bottom of the neck. This bottle was probably dug 40+ years ago because the state of the paper stuck on it. I like to know how much bottles are worth, even though I have no intentions of selling. What is this worth?
