This is a black H & A Gillrey bottle embossed with a seahorse or dragon in a castle with bubbles in the glass, there are two pale green embossed bottles, which appear to read J G Comrie, Glasgow, but am not quite sure. I also have a collection of small blue medicine bottles, which include a Woodward chemist Nottingham, a small not to be taken 2 0z, a Granula Citrate of Magnesia, a taller blue not to be taken and a clear boots the chemist bottle. The smaller green bottles include Clubb's cucumber balm, James Woolley Sons & Co, Hollis's polishing fluid, G Foster Clark & Co Eiffel Tower Fruit Juice, St Jacobs oil. I also found various bitter bottles, including green Idris London, James Wilson Edinburgh, Armstrong & Dickie Dumfries, James Roberton & co Edinburgh and various bitter bottles from Cumbria. Have checked the stoneware and a few of them are by Bournes Denby and Lovatt & Lovatt, the markings are very worn.
There is also a small clear glass ink bottle, with a capital M inside a circle. I wondered if anyone knew who it was made by.
