Fancy Vinegar Flask ! ——- ? ? ?

Vinegar Flask(1)A09A1424

Week ago I’ve bought rather fancy item from Lidl shop.  

I don’t know the name which the receipt said Geschenkset.  = Anyhow

this is a Glass Flask to serve Vinegar and Olive-oil on the dining table. 

Vinegar Flask(2)477-001

They were sold as a gift set (for a Xmas ?) —– Olive-oil and a Vinegar

together with a glass flask for £7.99 !

Vinegar Flask(3)A09A1412

In fact, I was not interested in to

buy Olive-oil nor Vinegar, but

fascinated by the design of

glass which I can use it to

design strange sculpture kind.

Though, watching this many

days, I still couldn’t figure out

“How to make this” —– how a

Glass Craftsman made this !

Simplified description is, “Small glass flask inside of larger flask”

though, it is an utter puzzle to me = How it was made ? —— through a

hole of large flask, inserts a glass pipe with melted glass on the tip-end

and blow it up to make a small flask inside, and weld two together on

the edge of the hole —– though,  as the photo above showed, the neck of

the small flask is not an one-piece straight pipe = inside small flask was

made separately and the outside pipe was welded later.  But how ? ? ?

= If anybody who is reading this knows about the way to make,

please put a comment “How it was done” !

    That’s really interesting. I thought it looked like a hummingbird feeder!

      That’s interesting idea Karen —– I’ve seen a humming-bird only in a Zoo and
      didn’t think about a feeder (may be thinking, a keeper drip a honey water into flowers. 🙂 )
