The tall slender square shape and black amethyst color make it look quite nice. Black amethyst color? This color is the result of having manganese in the glass. Manganese is a mineral, a rock, that was mined, crushed, and pulverized into a powder, then added to vats of molten liquid glass, and acted as a decolorizing agent to turn the natural aqua-tinted glass into a pure crystal clear colorless glass. Then it was blown into a bottle like this. But when exposed to the ultraviolet rays of the sun or other sources of UV rays, it triggers a chemical reaction and the manganese starts to oxidize and slowly turns a lavender or amethyst color. The end result is what collectors refer to as SCA (Sun Colored Amethyst) glass. The longer it is in the sun the purpler it becomes. This bottle was exposed to a high heat/light source to enrich the purple color that would naturally occur if exposed to sun light for a prolonged period of time. And on account of the purple color, you can totally see every detail of the embossing because you are looking right at the embossing. With clear glass, you look through the embossing which is heavily influenced by the color and light patterns in the background. With this deep purple color, you are looking, not through the glass but right at the glass, so that every little embossed detail is highly visible. With few exceptions, only clear glass from before 1914 will turn sun-colored-amethyst. Not only does this deep purple/amethyst color make it a unique looking bottle, but it also authenticates it as being truly antique, check it out!
