19-th Century Inscribed "WILLIAMIVTHS REFORM CORDIAL" on front of this stoneware flask.
Inscribed " Belper & Denby * Bournes Potteries* Derbyshire*" on back.
Found at a hidden away antique shop in remote mountains.
Would love to know the value of it!

    This flask is a mid 2oth century reproduction. Several different types were made during the 1970s by the Bourne pottery including William IVth, Lord John Russell, Daniel O'Connell, and Old Tom (man on a barrel).

    This ebay sale is an example of another one. They do often turn up for sale described as the real (1830s - 40s) thing, especially on ebay but also in antique shops and by antique dealers.
