I really like old bottles, but dont collect them myself.. I sell if I find.. Your photo look like it is out of proportions - they all look tall and slim.. Is it correct ?

George Barrett has to be post 1874

And the codd bottle 1872


Next to the Barrett (mineral water) is a bear bottle. Probably be stamped on the front with the name of a green grocers. You use to take them back foe a refill.

All the back row look Victorian to early 1900

They write - The torpedo shape allowed cheaper glass to maintain the necessary strength to hold carbonated drinks.

Never would have guessed the name torpedo

Plenty of Victorian torpedo bottles for sale. Which would fit with the others. Looks like a Victorian dump.

Might be a trick of the photo.

Looks flask shaped to me. Whisky, perfume and so on.

Blue glass is a octagonal medicine/apothecary bottle

Just to add to the above posts the torpedo shaped bottles were called Hamiltons and as they were sealed with corks they had to be stored on their side to prevent the cork drying out. This design of bottle was rendered obsolete with the invention of the Codds patent.

Iv dug/collected bottles most of my life, All those are late Victorian/Early Edwardian. Codd bottle contained pop as dis the cylinder bottle with chisel screw stopper, the stoneware bottle is a Ginger beer, The egg shaped bottle contained mineral water, the globe shaped bottle is a target ball, quite scarce as you can imagine, most were shot to pieces, The blue one is a poison bottle. That is quite unusual with the word Poison embossed horizontally, ususlly embossed vertically. It might be worth putting that and the target ball on ebay. Nice finds
