Original German WWII Maker Marked Green Glass Wine or Beer Bottle

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice genuine German WWII private purchase green glass wine or beer bottle, offered in excellent condition with the original porcelain top and swivel top wire bale. Typically clear glass was used for beer while green or brown glass would have been for wine, but this was not a hard and fast rule.

The white porcelain stopper is nicely marked with the maker / retailer on the top in brown: WENZEL NETZOLD & SOHN / BODENBACH. We have not been able to find out anything regarding this maker / brewer, and leave this as a great research opportunity. The bottom of the bottle has a "punt" inlet, meaning it was hand blown by a glassmaker, and not made in a factory. Measures approximately 10 1/4 inches tall and 2 3/4 inches wide.

The rubber washer under the porcelain cap is still present, but it has deteriorated over the years. The cap can be opened, and has the remnants of the washer attached to it. These are seldom encountered and would look great with a German WWII display. Apparently many of these found in a French Rubbish dump 70 years after the close of WWII. A hard to find yet affordable collectible from the Third Reich.
