Thank you :)  they are great fun. 
And thanks to everyone for the help.

I've come to the conclusion that I  think the piece I'm trying to research is not German.

It hasn't arrived yet Peter...I'm fingers crossed it does arrive to be honest as I'm probably tempting fate talking about it at all.
I bought it thinking it was an Art Nouveau piece of glass as I'd seen something a similar shape (although it was advertised as something different entirely), then accidentally discovered it may not be - I wont really know until it turns up.  When (if) it arrives I'll post some pictures.

Hi ,
         I thought some might like to see a recent arrival , this one is a little larger though at 14 inches  and much easier to attribute both in date and to country which is c 1740 and Bohemia ,it has a lovely Zwishengold medalion on one end showing Bacchus  ;D

  cheers ,
                Peter.

He does look rather cheerfully sozzled.  ;D

Was Bacchus immune to hangovers?

A new link as the previous met museum link doesn't now show a picture
http://www.metmuseum.org/collection/the-collection-online/search/186457?rpp=30&pg=10&ft=glass+flask&pos=275

Also I have come across this
[Mod: Link removed as advised by poster that the link went elsewhere. Please see later post for revised link]

The Secular Spirit: Life and Art at the End of the Middle Ages ; The Metropolitan Museum of Art
Produced 1975
Page 47 shows
A tin-glazed and lustred earthenware barrel referred to as a 'refredador'
11 1/2" high and 8 3/4" wide
Valencia (Manises) Spain 16th century
Has spout in the middle and two little handles either side of the spout

I don't think I've found a reference to earthenware barrels from Spain before - I'd been searching France and found one or two from there but nothing from Spain.
