Hi all. 1st time poster here, so a total newb on old bottles.

Found below bottle in plumbing diggings behind a circa 1880 building in the main street of Bunbury West Australia. Wonder why we imported bottled drinks back then, it must have been economically worth it I suppose.

All the ones I have ever seen online always have embossed branding on them but this one does not; the only lettering is BRATBY & HINCHLIFFE LD and below that, MANCHESTER . No other embossing or other marks.
I have also noticed that the upper pinching in the neck is a different profile to most, and that the lower neck pinches are 90 degrees away from alignment to the upper pinches, once again going against the norm as I have seen so far.

The glass is very thick, heavy and contains quite a number of air bubbles; the manufacture seems crudely early compared to much finer examples online from the same maker.

Can anyone shed more light on its history? Is it worth anything?

Cheers everyone :)

It's called a codd bottle and is only worth about £5 at most, much more interesting piece than its value.

click a link below please, shows offenders images, see if you can spot anyone who may have tried to reinvent themself as someone else near you, putting those around you in danger as long as they are unknown, could be closer to you than you think, these type of people dont disclose, they do whatever they can to hide their past, but they are still the same, you could change someones life. . . . . . . . . . . . .
