The body of the bottle is flat front-to-back. Rim is round but sharp and jagged, as if recently broken. Neck is cylindrical for 8 cm., after which it flattens as it expands into the round and flattened body. There is no palpable pontil mark. The bottle cannot stand. The neck has many long bubbles and some diagonal cracks.
