Haut - Brion c. 1850's

This is a Haut - Brion French Bordeaux wine bottle, light green glass, spun pontil, round seal 'HAUT - BRION' with a bunch of grapes in the center and a thumb smear on right hand side. c. 1850's. It has the characteristic Haut - Brion shape of slopping shoulders and is visibly wider at the shoulder than at the base. Acquired in Florida, USA. A treasure.
