Here are a trio of English Codd bottles from my bottle collection. These are the only bottles I have purchased, all the rest (mainly milk bottles) I mostly dug up from the ground. I can only assume these are old bottles, but I know there are reproductions floating around. I bought them years ago simply because I liked them (the sandcastle one because it reminds me of my family's beach house and the greyhound ones because I used to have a pet greyhound that was retired from racing). If anyone has more information about them, please share.
The pair (one large, one small):
Shows an image of a greyhound dog with a rabbit in it's mouth and the word "Registered Trademark"
On reverse the larger one says "Patent Safe Groove, 4, Sole Makers, Dan Rylands Ld, Barnsley" while the smaller one says "The Rylands, 4, Barnsley"
Both have a marble inside that is green & clear. One has a metal ring piece that used to be part of seal down in the bottom of the bottle.
The aqua one:
Shows an image of a sandcastle with the word "Trademark"
On reverse it says "Codd's Patent Bottle, Extra Strong Glass"
There is a blue marble inside that once sealed it.
