Hi All,

Not a bottle, but I found this cap today, of course I know what it is! But what's the age of it? & what's is made of? It looks like Bakalite to me. Measures 30mm (1.18 Inch) at the widest, 32mm (1.25 inch) long.

I found it on a pathway on a local common. It was still screwed into the bottle, but unfortunately there was only about 2 inches of the neck left.
I'm quite new to bottle collecting, so forgive the newbie question Tongue

Best regards,

Simon

As said above, stoppers were made of ebonite. although the last of them can be found made of plastic. Not a bottle old enough for mainstream collectors, although if it had the label, it has an interest in another theme. Wink

As a newbie, best look for bottles from the pre-1920 era (in general) but its not a strict disciplineWink

this was taken from wikipedia,,older firm than i thought

"Glucozade" was first manufactured in 1927 by William Owen, a chemist based at Barras Bridge, Newcastle[2] who experimented for several years to provide a source of energy for those who were sick with common illnesses, like the common cold or influenza. It became available throughout Britain for use in hospitals under the name Glucozade. This was changed to Lucozade in 1929, and Beecham's acquired the product in 1938.[3] By the early 1950s, Lucozade was the source of half of the company's profits.

In 1953, a factory for the production of Lucozade products was opened in Brentford, England, which, until 2004, had an iconic sign seen on the side of the M4 motorway (now in Gunnersbury Park Museum).[4] Local people were reportedly upset when the sign was removed. A new and identical sign replaced the old sign in 2010.

Lucozade has a research arm known as The Lucozade Sports Science Academy, which has been carrying out nutritional research for over 30 years[when?]. It works in partnership with leading universities, coaches, nutritionists, and sports professionals.

Lucozade was sold in a glass bottle with a yellow Cellophane wrap until 1983, when Lucozade was rebranded as an energy drink to shift the brand's associations away from illness. The slogan "Lucozade aids recovery" was replaced by "Lucozade replaces lost energy". The glass bottle was replaced by a plastic (polyethylene terephthalate, PET) one. After the rebranding, between 1984 and 1989 UK sales tripled to almost £75 million.[5]

In 2013, Lucozade along with Ribena was put up for sale by its then owner, GlaxoSmithKline following several mergers. Sir Andrew Witty (Chief Executive of GlaxoSmithKline) said that "there has been a lot of interest for the two brands".[6]

Lucozade (and Ribena) are currently owned by Suntory, a Japanese holding company
