This bottle, possibly a version of the hanging leather pilgrim flask used during journeys, would have been used to cool wine in a larger container of water and, although few have survived, was presumably quite a commonly seen form at one time. The arms within a shield on the side are those of Enrique of Aragon-Segorbe, lord of Paterna, or of his son Alfonso, who succeeded him as lord of Paterna in 1516.
Henry G. Marquand (until 1894; to MMA)
