Greenish-blue glass flask. Fluted bulbous body; spiral dark green threading on neck. Narrow mouth
Mold blown greenish blue flask of glass. Heavy yellow iridescence on the neck which is elongated and constricted at its base. The bulbous body is fluted; below is a narrow three-sectioned tube ending in a small bulb. The neck is closely wrapped in spiralled glass threads of dark green glass. The opening is very narrow. This shape and its use are a complete mystery to me.
