Dutch glass "onion" bottle, intact, rare as from this wreck. 673 grams, 7" tall and 5-1/2" in diameter. This complete and totally undamaged bottle is in perfect condition, better than most non-salvage examples in fact, probably due to its contents having leaked out in the ocean, for others we have seen with corks and wine intact displayed significant flaking and discoloration from the acid in the wine. This piece, in contrast, has only minute traces of "pearling" and no chips or stars in the light olive-green glass, just some stains inside where some residue remained as well as very fine encrustation inside minute etching on the exterior. Recovered from: Reijgersdaal, sunk in 1747 off South Africa
