Early Rare J.LONG,10oz CODD from STAR WORKS WHITCHURCH HAMPSHIRE Niagra Patent

A nice rare early bottle from a Hampshire village. The bottle was used by J.LONG of WHITCHURCH who proudly embossed to its front in large in your face style lettering THIS BOTTLE IS THE PROPERTY OF J.LONG STAR WORKS WHITCHURCH . To the rear is embossed again in big in your face lettering THE NIAGRA BOTTLE with below this BARNETT & FOSTER MAKER LONDON RD 65433 .

Made from early aqua glass containing bubbles, it would benefit from a good clean although its been happliy sat on my display shelf for many years. It honestly shows its age there are patches of thin matt glass, mostly to the internal rear surface but also on other parts perhaps about 30%. It shows the usual minor surface scratches caused during its original use and refilling and for that matter burial for 125+ years. The lip has what I believe is a small 2mm moulding blemish although it could be a minor crack.
