A vintage ruby flashed bottle or decanter (for perfume or spirits presumably) and stopper, probably Bohemian / Czech in origin. The base of the bottle is star cut. Please note that the ruby colour is on the pinkish side.
There are no visible cracks but there is some wear to the base, commensurate with age and use. There is some sediment inside the bottle, evident from the base, and which we have tried to show in the photographs. There is also some scratching on the neck of the bottle (which we have tried to show with limited success in the photographs), which may or may not have arisen from using the stopper. There are a few small nibbles to the rim of the bottle and to the base of the stopper, again commensurate with use. There are a few small chips to the base of the bottle, which we have tried to show in the photographs.
The stopper is believed to be the original.
The bottle and stopper stand approximately 7in tall and the bottle alone stands just under 5in tall to the rim. The base of the bottle measures just under 2.5in square.
Together, the bottle and stopper weigh just over 530g. Exact age unknown but probably dates from the middle of last century, or slightly earlier.
