Old beer bottle ?

Postby beerlover1983 » Tue Oct 11, 2011 5:53 pm

Was having a tidy up in the garage and found this im guessing its a old beer bottle had a small search on net .
The small mark seems to be a potters mark but i cant find record or the brewers in the area it suggests on the bottle.
I guess it would mean a trip to libary to look in old files.

That's very cool :)

Closest thing I found in a little search was Gray and Sons (also saw G Ray and Sons) who brewed in Essex.

Doesn't seem to be much about it. Take a look at this.
