Four British, made in England, codd bottles from the early 1900’s.
Four great examples of codd bottles with their unusual and ingenious design. There are three large bottles and a slightly smaller rarer example.
The bottles are as follows:
Charles Ingram, the bottle is marked as follows: Contents bottled by Chas. B Ingram. Leeds and Knaresboro. Registered Charles B Ingram. XL Trademark. The bottle has small amounts of wear but no chips. There are interesting bubbles in the glass from the production process. The marble is still in place in the neck but all rubber elements have gone.
R H Watson, the bottle is marked as follows: R. H. Watson. Wigton. W Brooke, Maker, Leeds. This bottle has some wear consistent with its age, but no chips or sharp edges. The marble is present in the neck but no rubber elements remain.
Harston & Co Ltd, the bottle is marked as follows: Harston and Co Ltd. Leeds and Harrogate. There is a wonderful trademark which shows a bird holding a branch in its mouth facing down as the trademark. A Alexander & Co, Leeds and London is marked on the reverse. This bottle is in good condition overall but there is a small chip on the inside of the rim. The marble is present and the rubber seal or gasket, which appears to have perished, is present in the bottle of the bottle.
The fourth bottle, which is rare, and slightly smaller than the rest is marked W J Pratt. It has an interesting belt and buckle trademark displaying the name W J Pratt, Leighton Buzzard. The bottle has wear consistent with its age but no chips. The marble is present in the neck.
