Long necked glass bottle in clear or aqua marine glass. Overall height of 210 mm from base to finish, the height of body from base to shoulder being 120 mm. The finish being of the applied style, bearing a ring of glass approximately 15 mm wide over a further ring extending a further 5-10 mm down the neck. The base of the vessels exhibits a slightly concave punt <10 mm deep. In profile the body appears to be of a flattened hexagon shape, approximately 70 mm wide. the largest pane of the hexagonal shape being 45 mm across. The contraction from body to neck is severe, narrowing to 30 mm in only 10 mm of height, the contraction being convex in shape. The exterior of the neck is 30 mm wide at its base, tapering to 20 mm where it meets the finish. the finish being approximately 25 - 30 mm across. The body bears the inscription of C & B embosed near the base of the largest pane of the hexagon. The intended use of the vessel is unclear, being of a fairly unique design, and may relate to medicinal products or possibly the bottling of gin. No exact details of the company or product to which the logo C & B relates can be ascertained at this time. As it was found with mid to late 19th century finds, it implies a probable date of this period. The verall condition is good as the vessel is complete, though there is soe evidence of encrustation along one side of the body.
