This bottle is a beautiful bottle featuring a woman on a horse brandishing a sword and shield on a horse with armor that has snakes on the shields. After long research it was discovered that this was from the brewery called Brasserie de l'Ancre and they were in business in Antwerp from 1899 through 1964 - when they closed. Some of the beers they produced included Blond, Export, Helles Type, Kemmelbier, Killer Bier, Matt's Ale, Matt's Bock, Matt's Dark, Matt's Light, Matt's Pater, Matt's Pils, Op Sinjoorken, Op-Man, Ridd's Ale, Ridd's Beer, Ridd's Stout, Ridder's Bier, Stout, Weinachten Bier, Wiener Bier en Wynachten Bier, Dortmunder Ritter Bier, Vin des Flanders, Wijn van Vlaanderen and Wynachten 50. I am nor sure what this bottle contains other than it is an amber color and still has a very good fill level so no notice of any cap leakage. I have owned for about 25 years and bought it on one of my first trips to Belgium. The bottom of the bottle has some numbers on it including 38 and 46...might be the bottle production date.
