 Updated pics of the dumpy Codds currently in my collection. Some have other bottles alongside them for comparison or just to show them together.  

Pic 1 aqua Reliance and Bulb dumpy codds no rear embossing on either. Bulb embossed RYLANDS BULB / MAKER / DAN RYLANDS / BARNSLEY. Reliance embossed RELIANCE PATENT / SOLE MAKER / DAN RYLANDS / BARNSLEY. In the case of the Bulb it was dug near Canterbury from the same tip and in the same week that the small green Barnwell, Herne Bay dumpy codd was recovered now in John Ault's collection. 

Pic 2 a Murat Bulb embossed Ph MURAT & CO / TRADE / MARK / MANCHESTER. No rear embossing shown with the one above for comparison , note the different shape around the shoulder. 

Pic 3 A pair of Murat dumpy Codds the small early neck patent is embossed on the front as shown the rear embossing CODDS/PATENT/4 / MAKERS/ RYLANDS & CODD / BARNSLEY a stunning little bottle and still very rare.

I'll return to the little early necked Murat a little later meanwhile

Pic 4 a pair of Reliance dumpy Codds, the amber bottle is from The South Hants Mineral Water Company embossed S. HANTS MINERAL WATER COMPANY / TRADE MARK / Bottle. Rear embossed RELIANCE PATENT / 4 / SOLE MAKERS / DAN RYLANDS / BARNSLEY. Its in excellent condition and a lovely colour. I believe there may be only one other damaged example known.

Pic 5 the South hants Reliance 10 ounce Codd shown alongside it. Embossed with Britannia then RELIANCE PATENT / 4 / SOLE MAKERS / DAN RYLANDS / BARNSLEY. Rear embossed SOUTH HANTS MINERAL WATER COMPANY / TRADE MARK / Bottle.

I'll add more pics in stages subject to your approval.

Thanks guys for all your positive comments re my first post in this thread, I have edited it already to add more info re the embossing. 

Steve With regard to the camera, I use a Canon EOS digital mounted on a tripod with a Sigma close up lens. Using a close up lens requires a tripod otherwise if hand held the pics would be unusable because of distortion due to camera shake.

The shots are taken indoors using a light tent and 4 sets of daylight bulbs also mounted on tripods. That allows me to direct light from all sides or different heights and positions. All the pics are taken using manual camera settings, which give me far better control of the photos.

Having said all that for every photo I use I probably discard half a dozen others as not good enough. Aqua glass in particular is very difficult to photo as I'm sure you will all know, when I have two or three different coloured bottles together in a shot the problems increase for example as in the two Reliance dumpys.

I found that the best way to achieve a good photo is to take a separate shot of each one with the camera and the bottle fixed in the same position to retain the perspective and change the camera settings manually for each one. Finally the two or three pics are merged together for the end result

Photo 6 an early amber dumpy embossed CODDS/PATENT/4 / MAKERS/ RYLANDS & CODD / BARNSLEY, no rear embossing. this bottle is very rare I believe 3 only are known together with the small early Patent 24 Murat showing the rear embossing.  

Photo 7 the Patent 4 alongside another amber dumpy embossed on front ROYAL UNDERCLIFFE / WATER / AND ICE / COMPANY / VENTNOR / RUWAIC. Rear embossing CODDS PATENT 4 / MAKERS / CODD & RYLANDS / BARNSLEY. Note the almost flat bottom on this dumpy it even though its a later bottle. 

Photo 8 the Murat Patent 24 alongside an early Patent 4 embossed Codds Patent /4 / Barnett & Foster / Sole Agents / London / N,  no rear embossing. There is a glue like  sediment still inside which I've found impossible to remove. So it awaits a clean and polish 

Photo 9 & 10 three and then four of the small dumpy Codds shown together.

Photo 11 early 10 ounce greeen embossed as the small Murat above, CODD'S / PATENT / LONDON 24 / BARNETT & FOSTER / SOLE AGENTS / FORSTON / LONDON, no rear embossing

Photo 12 three colours together

More to follow
