    These antique bottles were recovered from a derelict tidal flooded cellar beside the river in Newcastle Upon Tyne when the planning dept was surveying for re development and recording the historic buildings around 50 years ago They had probably been there for at least fifty years before they were discovered
    They had been there for a very long time. Were they Davidson or Sowerby or just some local exporter
    The Blue is vibrant and they stand 15" high and are 6" diameter The number 140 is moulded into the recessed base

      We need to get Malkey onto these.
      He's a bottle collecting Tyne-sider.

      My mum worked for Wilf Burns and co at the planning dept and they spent months surveying the Quayside. One of the team found the cellar that was stacked full of bottles of many colours and sizes all covered in Tyne Ooze Many were "Liberated" and sold by the guy that discovered them but he did not divulge the exact location which was only accessible for a couple of hours either side of low water .When the Quayside was redeveloped access was lost but the cellar was never emptied !

      Wow, the story behind these gorgeous cobalt bottles is quite amazing! I can just see these wonderful bottles floating around, so glad so many were saved. What I don’t understand is why they didn’t take them all out. Is the cellar now sealed up? If so, what a shame, but at least some were saved. Extraordinary story!
