Blown green bottle glass; squat bulbous form with tall tapered neck and applied string lip, push up from base, pontil mark; early wine bottles are usually attributed to England, but in this instance the evidence points to a Dutch attribution. Olive Jones refers to the "large sandy pontil mark" as characteristic of English wine bottles, which this bottle does not possess, absent an English origin, the most likely alternative is across the North Sea in the Low Countries.
