Agreed, somebody probably heated it up, put some air to it and gave it that shape. And I don't know where the level is set for glass blowing but I imagine it would have taken a fair size furnace, proper annealing, and some skills to make it last that way (the other possibility is some lucky torchwork) I think it's pretty cool.

Hi Gina,

Welcome to Antique-Bottles. ...I agree the vintage soda bottle was heated and stretched. This was generally done in the 1960s and '70s but tended to be more uniformly vertical. (Colored sand optional.) From what I've seen the ones just mentioned usually end up in the $20.-$30. range. Yours however, is quite exceptional and is probably one of a kind effort by an experienced glass blower. I would put it at the triple digit dollar level. Still, its greatest value is that it was given to you by your Dad.
