Hi to everyone on the glass message board :hi:
I stumbled across this excellent site and have spent too much time browsing!
Hope someone will be able to help identify or give me some more info on a rather attractive apothecary's / chemist's bottle which has come my way. I have attached pictures below and as you will see it is clear moulded glass (is that the term for two pieces of glass moulded together rather than a piece of blown glass with a pontil?) On one side of the item the words Inf: Buchu: Conc: 1-7 have been etched. I believe this stands for infusion of Buchu with a concentrate but I could be wrong.
The item has a ground glass stopper and underneath has the number 16 pressed into the base with two curious arrows pointing in opposite directions, each with a little tail which goes out vertically from the base of the arrow.
I think it could well be continental (sorry if I have posted this query in the wrong place :spls2: ) and I wonder if the arrows represent a military connection? The bottle stands 19cm high (22cm with stopper). Look forward to any help you may be able to give..
Thanks so much
