Do you think it was designed as a decanter?  It looks to have more in common with a bottle that might have been found in an antique apothecaries shop for storing medicinal products.

I would say it was a 1970s/80s decanter.

N.B.  Don't place any store on any suggestion that I make, I will freely admit to knowing nothing about glass other than I like it LOL
