German term or phrase: geschnürlt, überfangene Gläser oder Mascherlgläser
The paragraph reads:
"Kurios sind Schnupftabak-Fläschchen, die an Parfum-Flacons erinnern und schon im 17. Jahrhundert verwendet wurden. Ab dem 19. Jahrhundert wurden sie auch farbig hergestellt. Sie waren oft Geschenke zu verschiedenen Anlässen und dann mit Namen sowie Datum versehen. Je nach Art der Fertigung werden sie etwa geschnürlte, überfangene Gläser oder Mascherlgläser genannt."
