Any ideas? Looks like a small vase or beaker. No seams, and I believe there is a pontil mark on the bottom. Also has/had 2 faint gold lines near the top.

Came out from under what was once an old barn.

Any ideas?
Thanks!

Suck and blow scar from a bottle machine, bottle was spun in the mold after being blown so there are no seams. In my opinion 1960-70's vase...

Seams are a poor identifier for age. My opinion is that they are determined by the quality and age of the mold. In the case of mold blown bottles, the skill of the gaffer would also be a factor. Also if it was an applied or a tooled top. That is my opinion, I'm sure there are other opinions out there.
