A smaller sized onion bottle in a dark olive green color. Glass onions were hand-blown glass bottles frequently used aboard sailing ships to hold wine or brandy. For increased stability on rough seas, the bottles were fashioned with a wide-bottom shape to prevent toppling, thus making the bottles look somewhat onion-shaped. Onion bottles were invented in the late 17th century. Ours is English in style and is c. 1720.
About 5" tall x 5" in diameter. Holds 20oz.

Super nice item that was shipped very quickly. The bottle is a very good reproduction, although I wish the stopper had a more less than new appearance. Still, I have no problem recommending the bottle.
I bought this onion bottle to sit on our drinks cabinet and hold port. My husband and I enjoy the occasional glass of port after dinner. What a beautiful bottle and fits right in so nicely on display on top of our drinks cabinet. Now I feel like I must have the long neck bottle as well.
