Hello everyone, I'm struggling to find a value for this pretty bottle, the bottom says "W N Walton patt sep 23 1862"
You can go to the glassware section of this site, as well, and give it a try. Click on FIND ANTIQUES, Then GLASSWARE, then GLASS HOUND HAVEN. BikerBonnie has also provided a good link.
From what I am learning, apothecary bottles seem to hold value more to certain individuals than others. The rarity, color, size, etc. all factor into this. Cobalt Blue used signified Poison from what I recall. You should include the size, height, etc. to help in the search.
There are a wide variety of prices out there...Happy Monday
"Struggling" huh? Google search has 10 pages + of information. I struggled for about 10 seconds to find them...here's one of them. https://www.trocadero.com/directory/search.php?keyword=cobalt+blue+...
With so many of them around I'd be leery of the value. Bottles are commonly reproduced. Not saying yours is, just saying.
The paper label was added after the bottle was sold...I can't find any info about the chemist anywhere in the UK.
Thanks for your replies everyone, I managed to find a clear version of exactly the same pattern bottle earlier but, like you Tom, I have some reservations about the label. The bottle feels good in the hand and has bubbles and good colour so I think it's OK but I'm still at a complete loss as to a value for it, there are so many variables to consider that it will probably end up on a shelf keeping other knick knacks company!
