CLOETTA. MINI & CO.
"Fire-red" or reddish amber 3/8 pot Danish "arrak" bottle. H. 25,5 cm.
Very whittled ladies leg. Dip mould with pontil scar.
Arrak was a distillate from the far east, made from rice and palmjuice, compares to West Indian rum.
The tallest bottle measures 30.5cm tall has a honey yellow colour, measures 26oz, and was recovered in South Australia.
I think that the CM & Co is easily 1850's,
by the look of it. It has a crude mis-shapen ladies leg neck & roughly
applied lip ring. It's the earliest looking ribbon seal bottle that I have
seen out here.
Even though it came out of the sea, it was found with just the bottom ring
of the base showing as it was upside down in the silt & it has no damage -
no chips, cracks, leaching or dings - just some light scuffs. There is even
some of the original shine in parts. It is very early & crude looking. It
is very close to having an open pontil by the look of the base which is not
even completely round. The only sign of any marks in the glass are some
very small dimples, like pin-pricks (not damage - in the making), so it's
not turn mould made. It has no mould seams on it, though. I'm not sure how
it was made, unless in a cup mould?
3/8 and 3/4 pot Danish green bottles. Turned in mould.
These bottles was used for light beer, and the patients on the hospital used to help tapping the beer from the barrels. The Hospital still works, situated in Roskilde 30 kms outside Copenhagen. There is even a museum part at the hospital.
