Recently I picked this Lincolnshire salt glazed porter up

it stands approx 7.5 inches tall

Impressed

T N CATLEY
LINCOLN


It might be an early bottle from the Catley Abbey seltzer company

I have not seen one of these porters before but other members might know different.

Hi Mark,

I have extensively researched Lincoln`s GB/Mineral Water manufacturers.

Thomas Newmarch Catley started trading at 6 & 7 Steep Hill, Lincoln in the early 1850s.

He is mentioned in TDs as a confectioner and ginger beer manufacturer in 1856/57.

Thereafter, he was a game & poultry dealer, clothier, jeweller and wardrobe dealer.

He died in 1891.

I have found no connection with the Catley Abbey enterprise.

There are at least 3 variations of the bottle, which (despite its shape) I believe to have only contained ginger beer.

A really interesting selection. I especially like the saltglaze examples. Many thanks for the photos.



Can I raise a query please ? Although there's no connection to the Catley Abbey Seltzers I've often wondered how many different shades of glass they are recorded in ? It's such a striking trade-mark.

Hi Chris

The business was started around 1842 and continued well into the last quarter of the 20th century.

The family were of some standing in Lincoln.

Over these many years there have been numerous different spirit flasks used; mostly aqua but also in green and "brown" like your example.

The embossing C. PRATT & SONS would indicate a date from the 1920s.
