I can't imagine what a bottle made into a lamp must look like if all the lamp components are on the outside of the bottle. What is used to hold it all together? Hose clamps, duct tape?

At any rate what you have is a curiosity, but nothing more. I'm going to guess that 1972 has something to do with the age of the wine, although that is not necessarily so.

It is of passing interest that your label has French (vin rouge), Italian (chianti) and German (rotwein inhalt) words on it. Just passing interest.

This bottle of wine or lamp is worth whatever you paid for it.

The 72 is the contents, 72cl, so it sounds like a pre EU accession wine.

Really, the wine is worth nothing.

It is a fallacy that wines get more valuable as they get older. Unless a wine was valuable to start with or has some connection with fame then it gets less valuable.

The fact that the OP noted "072" should have been a clue that it didn't mean 1972
