Antique German Stoneware Salt Glaze Pottery Wine Bottle circa Late 19th century‏

This is a beautiful antique stoneware pottery wine bottle, with a salt glaze, wheel thrown, hand crafted in Germany around the end of the 19th century. The bottle has wheel lines on the surface of the pottery, it is a rich brown color with dark speckles throughout, with a shimmering brown-bronze hued matte glaze. It has marks near the bottom, I think they are "0.7 L" for the volume in liters, and "St.N ...something", probably for the place of manufacture (thank you to a very helpful Ruby Lane user who helped me with this) I could not read them very clearly. The metric system of measurement became compulsory in Germany in 1872. The bottle is quite tall and leans a bit to one side, a fairly typical fault in a utility item made by a rustic hand crafted process. The bottle is tall and narrow, ideal for wine with rounded shoulders and a short stocky neck with a thick rimmed mouth. This is a lovely old piece of pottery with quite a bit of character.

Measurements: 10 3/4 inches tall; base is 3 inches wide; mouth is 1 1/4 inches wide on the outside and 7/8 inch on the inside.

Condition: excellent antique condition; now empty, I could find no chips or cracks; there are some surface scuffs and rubs here and there from age/use and wear, commensurate with age and use. Please see photos for detailed condition.
