Primary Description: 
Transparent deep blue, with opaque white trail; Blown in a dip mold, and applied. The object is a bottle with a roughly globular body. The mouth is inclined, with the upper edge drawn up in a narrow, tongue-like extension, and a rounded lip, which was finished with a continuous white trail. The neck is a narrow tube, wider at the bottom than at the top, which descends in an S-shaped curve. The lower part of the neck and the upper wall have faint, spiraling ribs formed in a dip mold. The base has a splayed foot ring made by folding, a conical kick, and a large, annular pontil mark (0.0 cm x 0.0 cm).
