Antique Sealed Shaft & Globe Wine Bottle Lion C1655/66

Exceptional long neck sealed shaft and globe with rampant lion holding a staff. The bottle was dug many years ago from a cess pit in Northern Holland. The surface of the bottle was preserved when it came out of the ground by the original finder. Two blobs of glass exist on the surface and have been there from manufacture. Apart from a 1 inch chip on the string rim this bottle is in remarkable condition with no other issues. The seal is well struck and the body is almost ” ball shaped” denoting an early date between the years 1655 to 1666. Height 9 inches, width 5.5 inches.** Provenance Willy Van den Bossche Collection*** Please see detached seals found in London and now in the Museum of London. Mentioned on page 1355 of Antique Sealed Bottles by David Burton***
