    hi this a bulb neck codd 6/ounce with a cobalt blue lip
    J & M stephenson Morpeth only 2 examples known
    on reverse of bottle Rylands bulb makers Dan Rylands Barnsley
    the idea of coloured lip to identify the company to avoid theft by other mineral water manufactures

    date of bottle 1880s
    the marble in chamber when being filled with aerated mineral waters
    is forced up neck to rubber ring in lip making an air tight seal
    the marble was pushed down to release into chamber below & the fizzy drink could then drank poured out

      The coloured tops always intrigued me. I don't think any of the American Codds had them.
