Green Belgian Sliwka Bottle

A green glass bottle, from Belgium. Second-hand.

What's for sale?

This is an old and original, green, glass bottle from Brussels in Belgium. Etched on the front are the words:

"SLIWKA - TEL 17 48 92 - BRUXELLES".

As 'Sliwka' is Polish for plum, it may have contained plum wine, but it could also refer to the family name of a Belgian company.It holds one litre, so it is probably not a normal wine bottle. It has a dimpled base and fairly thick glass, but not like a siphon bottle.

It's an old bottle and looks like it has been re-used several times. We have no no way of dating it, and it has scuffs and marks all over, adding to its appeal.

  • Second-hand
  • In fair to good condition
  • There is a small crack beneath the top
