Among the exceptional haul of vintage and antique bottles we salvaged from a collector, were a number of bottles that had developed an iridescent sheen - either on the whole bottle, or on small sections. Research says this happens when bottles are left in alkaline heavy dirt or water. These bottles were previously stored in milk crates in a shed and salvaged by us. No further history is known, so this may well have been the case for these bottles.

Because the iridescence can flake off, we have only cleaned these with a soft, damp cloth. We have not washed the insides (especially as some bottles contain their original corks).

Measurements are approximate.
