I reckon that these colourful, shapely little items are greatly underestimated in the bottle world. What other type of bottle offers so much variety, colour and shape - and you don't need a fortune to amass a fair collection. Furthermore history is recorded in ink, not Ginger beer or spirits, etc. What's more they take up less display space.

Nothing spectacular in this lot but they do look nice anyway.

I agree, love 'em !

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.

I've always liked inks and I keep the odd ones that I've dug myself (blues, greens bell shaped, and less common types). There was a tip once where there were bracelet inks, igloo and Blackwood's being dug regularly but that's gone now. Its a good collecting line and you have an interesting collection.:cool:
