The pontil scar seems to be slightly concave as well (in addition to the slightly concave base) Also, there's a slight, very. Sharp edge towards the outer rim on one section of the pontil scar. This is where the pontil was grounded.
The bottle is topped off by a s ilver neck/collar ring with a matching silver topped cork. Both are engraved, but with no hallmarks. While the silver collar on the neck is in wonderful condition, the silver on the cork is worn... Probably because it was used/loved so much.
This is an exquisite specialty liquor bottle/flask/decanter, probably from. Ireland (think Irish Whisky), or possibly Scotland (think Scotch). I would date it from the 1850's to the 1870's, as specialty liquor bottles of this type were popular then (Although they dated back to the 1820's). It would have originally had the tavern's label on it, and this would have held their "top shelf" liquor. When the bottle was empty, they would have had it refilled.7 1/4" x 5 1/2" x 3" - the cork adds another 3/4" to the height. 1 lb 2 7/8 oz. Be sure to look at the image closely a they are part of the description.
