Help identifying an old Pommard bottle? (1856)

Bought this old (empty) 375mL bottle at a garage sale for $1. The label says "Pommard 1er CRU 1856." From some quick research, this is a French winemaker, but I cannot find anything from them that is this old.

The bottle really shows its age, and almost looks like it might be an old craft that someone made, where they painted the inside of the bottle silver. The bottle is stamped "UNITED SPIRITS LTD"

Does anyone have any more information on it? I think it is kind of a neat, unique piece, but am curious if it could be worth anything?

Thanks!
