....but I can't find any info on the maker - if indeed that is a makers mark - the omega symbol with the two dots underneath it.

Is it a wine bottle - not sure - not informed enough on this stuff - perhaps a whiskey bottle.  It looks old, but could be new...   We think it's an amber/black.  Any help would be appreciated. :)

Rather brand new with the eu content logo - the inverted 3. It contains 75 cl when filled to 65 mm from the top. I think the omega sign is the punt mark for Vetropack (the .. denote the works) but that is easily looked up.

Thank you kindly Ivo - we weren't familiar with the Euro mark - too bad.  At least it was cheap....

Wow Anne - that looks exactly like it.  As it is new, and not old - that is probably the id I needed.  Thank you! :)

I thought Black Tower as well but thought it best not to say it and reveal my youth. It was the height of sophistication in the 80's  ;D ;D ;D
