    I have an unknown bottle in my possession. It has the word Cattedrale on the bottom. it is a circular shaped at the base and it narrows into a cork top. it seems to be wrapped in leather or hide? the bottle itself under the wrapping is green.

      cattedrale translate from Italian as cathedral... not surprising as the building sure looks like an Italian catholic church. You could possibly do a photo-search for Italian churches that look like your bottle; note that your church has right beside it a "campanile" (an Italian bell tower, especially a freestanding one), a common but still distinctive enough to weed out 1/2 the church pictures you might retrieve.You do not say that the 'bottle' is glass -- can you tell if it is glass at the mouth below the cork? Without ruining the piece by taking the leather off to inspect the glass, it will be most difficult to approximate the age. Just offering a guess here: history tells us that throughout the Middle Ages and later, "pilgrims" wandered over Europe to pray at churches, monasteries, religious shrines, sites that housed religious relics. Like a modern army on the march, each individual carrying a canteen, each pilgrim would carry their own life-sustaining water supply, sometimes in a contained like a gourd calabash but the wealthier pilgrim would have a flask. They were usually flattened, usually 'armored" with leather or woven rattan/ reeds, often with a strap attached so to be carried over the shoulder. Yours could be a pilgrims' flask several hundred years old or more modern "repro" pilgrims' flask sold at this church's gift shop.

    I have a Forsha Alternative Balm bottle that I found. Green Aqua, 5-1/2", open pontil, applied double collar mouth. I don't have any knowledge about bottles and was wondering how much it is?

    Did you ever acquire the flask that you have had your eye on for decades? If you did not ,well I happen to own a green masonic flask. It has the 6 pointed star with the all seeing eye in the middle of it and the letters AD . On the other side there is also a six pointed star with an arm and what looks to be a head located on the star. Under the star are the letters GRJA . My bottle is in excellent condition, not only that, it also has a what appears to be an accidental mark on the bottle caused by the maker. I believe this distinctive mark separates my flask from all the other CRJA flasks. If you are interested feel free to contact me.
