Square glass bottle with cork/metal double stopper
« on: February 12, 2013, 12:44:22 PM »
This square glass bottle was given to us during the 1970ies. Base dimensions are 88 mm x 88 mm, height (without stopper) is 165 mm, weight is 444 g (467 with stopper).

We assume this bottle to come from Scandinavia. Dimensions, stopper, and the way the bottle neck is attached to the body, remind me of the Holmegaard Juleflasks, which have been produced from 1981 until today.

Any comment would be welcome!

Definitely in the right corner - but I don't think it is a Juleflask.  It is a traditional bottle in half-post technique used for Snaps. Such bottles have been produced by all Danish glassworks, and by some of the Swedish ones. My guess is that it is old - cork lined metal stoppers were used originally, later (in the seventies) they were replaced by a straightforward cork with a pierced coin on top.

Thank you for the info, Ivo - incl. the hint about the age. It is definitely not a Holmegaard Juleflask - the first one of these seems to be from 1981, and we got our bottle a few years earlier. Your info suggests now, that it was not new when we got it.

Is the metal silver, silver plate, pewter or base?
Silver plated: see images below after polishing - although it doesn't quite show up.

As to half post, see here:

:D :P ;D

Silver plate is unfortunate as it makes it hard to date.... could be 1950s/60s, or even 1920s....
