Huh. This cobalt bottle is so rare I can't find anything about it on-line. Are you confident that this is not a fantasy bottle? I see the image is from a Norm Heckler auction catalog -- which one?
I'd have to look back, but I do know that one was in the Burton Spiller collection. There may be two examples out there.

Harry, that's going to be lot 226 in NCH auction number 180. I believe this one is a second example and not the one out of the Spiller collection. I couldn't put my hand on that catalog, but I believe his was mint.

The pictures loaded out of order, but the last is the page out of Agee's book. The display of Spiller's collection is out of the Encyclopedia of Collectibles.

Hope this helps. Hopefully, we won't get scolded for not staying on topic and starting a separate thread. :)
