Collected: Turps Bottle

In Appreciation of Bottles 

A left over from a purchased lot of bottles, this large bottle has a threaded lip, which I usually hesitate to collect, but it ended up at home anyways. To my horror I thought the bottle had 6 centimetres of caked on mould at the bottom, but in trying to rinse it out, I discovered it was actually paint or turpentine solvent.

No matter how much sudsy water I could use, this caked in oil painting will never wash away.
