Long-Necked Wines (1600-1875)

Long Necked WinesStefano Carboni includes one of these bottles in his book that highlights the collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and calls it 17th century. The Met purchased it from Sotheby’s, who described it in their catalogue as 9th-12th Century.  Here are four more. My guess would be that the first two are early 17th century, the third (which is the closest to the bottle in the Metropolitan Museum) is late 17th century, and the fourth is 19th century.
