Bottle

 

a glass vessel with a narrow neck. In Russia, before the introduction of the metric system of measures, a bottle was a legal measure of fluids. The wine bottle was equal to one-sixteenth of a bucket (0.68 liter) and the vodka or beer bottle was equal to one-twentieth of a bucket (0.615 liter).

What does it mean when you dream about a bottle?

A bottle of wine can mean celebration, the good life. Or, more negatively, “hitting the bottle” or to be “on the bottle.” A baby bottle can be associated with infantile desires or, more positively, nurturance. We also talk about how one “bottles up” emotions, or how “the genie is out of the bottle.”
