The bottle is made of a heavy, gutsy, hard metal, covered from head to toe with seed bubbles and grit, dirty glass, the ultimate in character and presence . In regard to it's rare form, free blown flasks from Zanesville and New Geneva are known to have been made in the scroll shape, possibly a style brought to America by German glass blowers.
