I dug this bottle from a 1920's tip and until recently it was the only one recorded, however I have now learned that another has been dug at Tilbury.

As you can see its a burst lip and very crudely made, there are even lumps of the glass mix embedded in the bottle. I have no idea what J. Long & Son were putting in this bottle but it must have been strong stuff for it to carry both 'Not To Be Taken' and 'Poisonous' warnings on each side.

Just shows that no matter how many times I have viewed your great collection there's always something I missed !  Super crude bottle, Brian.

:)

Wanted --- any unusual items from Kent & the South East, including advertising, early stoneware, & bottles (of course!).  Also rare patent poisons, early pontilled medicines, & rare burst lip/teakettle inks.
