Hello

I found a stash of these brown bottles (sadly none intact) in close proximity to the Holy Well spring and bottling plant on the Malvern Hills. Water has been bottled there since as early as 1622, according to Wikipedia. It is my opinion that these bottles were the ones damaged in the plant by workers and were thrown in a pile and eventually dumped nearby, as I found many fragments and around 20 almost intact bottles but every single one had damage somewhere.

Has anyone got one of these intact? I would love to see..

Would love to know what period these are from if anyone can tell me?

Cheers, MIABhttp://www.bottledigging.org.uk/forum/Uploads/Images/be093dcd-067e-40ce-8380-d36.jpeghttp://www.bottledigging.org.uk/forum/Uploads/Images/e774ee89-c441-4311-974a-3b7.jpeghttp://www.bottledigging.org.uk/forum/Uploads/Images/36603a01-3e31-49a5-b212-d02.jpeg

Probably c. 1890-1910.... It is a pity they aren't embossed.
