This silvered glass bottle is said to contain the spirit of a witch inside.
It was collected in 1915 from an old lady living in a village near Hove, Sussex, who sternly warned that if you opened the wax seal there would be a “peck o’trouble.”
The bottle now lives in the collection of the Pitt Rivers Museum, University of Oxford.
Wisely, no one has ever tried opening the bottle. Would you?

Thin glass (it looks like a recycled Christmas tree ornament) is not a wise choice if you really want to keep a witch in, methinks.
Hell no. I would not open that bottle.
