Please refer to our stock # vg109 when inquiring.
A fine Dutch dark green glass globular wine bottle from the second half of the 17th century, with the applied seal depicting the arms of Amsterdam. Of goodly size with a height of 8 3/8" and a diameter of approximately 5 1/2". The condition is excellent, with no chips, cracks, or restoration. Normal expected wear. It is very uncommon to find an early bottle with the seal totally intact.
NOTES: 1. The bottle was purchased in 1968 from Frides Lameris, a well-known and highly respected glass dealer in Amsterdam.
This bottle was discussed and illustrated in "The Journal of Glass", Corning Museum in the early 1970's in an article by Robert McNulty, Research Assistant to the Director of the Smithsonian Institution.
