This is a very unique bottle, obviously named by it's odd shape. The bottle was produced with marbles to separate a liquid on the bottom from a more gaseous liquid on the top. When the marble on top was forced down it would push the marble on the lower section down and allow the two liquids to mix. The bottle could then be turned that the marble on top would catch behind the neck and the liquid could be poured or drank. This type bottle was initially developed around 1844 and was used through prohibition.
This bottle does have a sizable chip on the bottom, however it does not affect the integrity of the bottle. The rest of the bottle is intact and free of cracks or repairs. Both marbles remain in the bottle. The bottle is 9 inches tall and 2.5 inches wide and weighs 1 pound and 9 ounces.
