It dates back to the early 1900s and measures 7 3/4 inches high by 2 1/4 inches in diameter. It has no chips or cracks but has some slight surface scratches and micro bruises and some scattered spots of surface cloudiness; please refer yourself to the pictures for condition. It still has a super shiny surface! It has been irradiated to give it its beautiful deep purple color an artificial process that turns antique clear glass in a beautiful deep amethyst/purple colored glass, it is about the equivalent of decades of glass overexposure to the ultra violet rays of the sun; the manganese which is one of the key ingredients that they used to take to get clear glass prior to 1910 reacts and becomes dark amethyst/purple in color, actually very few bottles have manganese in them and most are over 100 years old. Please take note that the color is not flashed on the glass nor applied, it is derived from the natural chemicals in the glass.It is embossed near the base "Property of the Coca-Cola Company Canada" along with the number'3'.
