    Dutch Onion Bottle

    I just pick up this really nice Dutch Onion bottle. Ive been trying to do some research on it. I found a web site that dates one like it at 1720s - 1730s. Does anyone know if this bottle is a horse hoof style? It has a very flat bottom.

    Nice pick-up! It cleaned up really well.

    Judge for yourself: There are three horse-hoof onions on the top shelf along with three "Dutch" onions.

    They are all "Dutch bottles" because the Dutch were the great colonial power and world trader - the big consumer of these bottles which were mostly made in Belgium and Germany. The yellowish olive-green horse-hoof is a typical Belgian bottle shape from 1720-1750.

    I have a couple of surplus "Dutch" onions, if you'd like to have another example.
