A rare and collectible, early 20th century clear glass Calvados bottle, the inside of the bottle fitted with a “ship-in-a-bottle” type of pyrographed timber construction depicting a typical rural scene from Normandy.

This bottle, the painstaking hobby of a French farmer, would normally have been filled and re-filled with Calvados from the barrel, for home use. Area of Normandy, early 20th century.
