Our smaller hand-blown, dark green, thick glass onion bottle reproduction will look perfect in your period home or modern farmhouse. Use it for water, wine or spirits, or add it to your glass collection. Rich in color and character, each hand-blown bottle is a one-of-a-kind antique reproduction. It is common for hand-blown glass to have production variations, including bubbles, different thickness and varying shapes and sizes which contribute to the uniqueness and individuality of each piece.
Glass onions were large hand-blown glass bottles used aboard sailing ships to hold wine or brandy. For increased stability on rough seas, the bottles were fashioned with a wide-bottom shape to prevent toppling, thus making the bottles look somewhat onion-shaped.
