Early Victorian bottle

Stock Number: 4351h

This is what we believe to be an olive green, two-part,  mould-blown, cylinder shaped bottle dating from sometime in the 19th century, and possibly French in origin.  Our knowledge of bottles is insufficient to give a more exact date.
The bottle is in excellent condition for its age.  It shows the age related wear and tear to the rim of the base consistent with some 100+ years of use.  The bottle is cyinder-shaped and  measures approximately 7.8 cm (3.1 inches) in diameter at its widest point.  The bottle is plain save for the neck ring, and the base is kicked-in about 3.5 cm (1.4 inches).  The bottle is 29.8 cm (12 inches) in height.  There are mould marks on the base of the bottle with flash decoration to the rim of the base.  The letters '75 cl' and '3' sit proud facing outwards.  The letters 'A' and '63 mm' and 'VI'(?) in a square sit proud facing inwards.   There is a moulded indentation to the base rim above which sit the characters '20' on the bottom of the body.  There is also a pattern of dots sitting proud on the opposite side to the indentation - two dots, a space, one dot, a space, one dot, a space and five dots.  There are no chips, cracks,  or any obvious evidence of restoration.    It weighs 656 g. (~ 1 lb 7 oz.).  
Provenance: The D.S. Neave collection, Marly-le-Roi, France.
