    So clearly not antique but it caught my eye for its very large 15” size. Couldn’t pass it up for a fin. I believe it’s a CV on the bottom but that’s just a wild guess and know idea what country uses CL(centiliter) as their or when their bottles were made. 300 cl = 101 oz :jawdrop: Very dark green in color

    anyone recognize the bottle with Mark?

    -wish it was full. :D

    Just about every country in the world uses the metric CL for liquid measurements apart from the US and maybe Canada

    My bad/ignorance, thought ml was the standard outside US, duh! Makes sense now.

    300cl bottle size is known as a Double Magnum
    Also known as a Jéroboam when used for Champagne and Burgundy

    Appreciate. Guessing it’s time to sterilize the bottle, buy 4 cheap bottles to fill it, cork it, label it “BIN 187” and invite a few of my lesser friends over for dinner, :hungry::hilarious::hilarious::hilarious:
