I have been trying various set-ups to see if I could improve some of the group poison shots. I would value your opinion guys on the results so far.
This is a full set of the Quines. The 1 ounce is the only recorded bottle in that colour and I believe it may also be the known undamaged example. The 8 ounce bottle is also very rare they may only be 3 or 4 recorded.
The Martins both sides shown
As you can see I been very fortunate in putting together 8 different sizes. The 20 and 12 ounce bottles are the only known examples. The 1/2 ounce is I believe one of just two known.
By the way for those of you who are digging at Tilbury this weekend. The 20 ounce Martins was dug from there 9 years ago. I bought it from the digger in it's dug condition, when he phoned me to tell that he'd dug it he described the bottle as being nearly a foot long, he wasn't far out either because it measures almost 11 inches in length. I left it for a week to settle down before I cleaned it. Luckily it required minimal cleaning and apart from a gentle polish by me it required no other treatment. In my humble opinion it is the best bottle so far to have been recovered from Tilbury.
Three of the above blues and one green also came from Tilbury so keep your eyes peeled guys.
The 20 and 12 ounce bottles are both very rare as is the 1 1/2 ounce which has a different rear embossing from the other sizes shown in the photo.
Once again I would appreciate your comments on the grouping of the bottles and best of luck to all on Sunday.
