Acme’s Wine Bottle Klein Bottle

The day that I have a spare $100 bill laying around and a nice place to put it, I will own this.
I love the description, which includes “Yes, you can store wine in it, and pour wine into and out of it. But no, it’s not very practical as a wine carafe…”
“As impractical as it is elegant.”
“Not only are these difficult to fill and empty, but cleaning them is a real challenge.”
and
“Guaranteed to frustrate even the most dedicated wine connoisseur: it’s difficult to fill, difficult to pour, and difficult to clean.”

Update: this pattern ran in March 1905:
