John Betts probably used this gingerade from the early 1880's up to the introduction of their first stone ginger beer in the 1890's and would have superceeded the chisel lip version of the 1870's. It seems like a reasonable chronology of the bottles used by this early Swansea company. I guess the colour of the glass is down to a batch not being used in the glasshouse at the time and was not going to be wasted, which makes it a rare version of this skittle. :cool:

Its value is what you paid for it, as the set price is irrelivent today as things have changed a lot in the bottle world. Its a lovely bottle Kelvin, so enjoy it butty:cool:
