Lot 17: George Lamb Thursday Island Antique Marble Bottle

« Back to Sale

Sold for A$41

Geo. Lamb / Trade / (Lamb) / Mark / Thursday Island. No base mark. (Queensland) Aerated Water Codd Applied top. Unusual codd style patent with one deep tear drop. Aqua. 13 oz. 218 mm. 1890s

Poor. Inner dirt, this should wash out. Heavy impacted mark to left neck, there is a crack from this from the top of the lip down to the neck groove, this crack is a bruised type crack which is wide, it goes 12 mm one way, and another 12 mm the other way, particularly around the impact, so up to 24 mm wide in places! The crack travels along the neck groove to the other side as well. There is a crack also starting from the lamb's nose which goes right down to the base and then across about 50 mm to the other side under the base. A few scuffs and scratches. A shiny example, this only has one tear drop, so is a very odd patent, with the tear drop being very pronounced, it still captures the marble nicely. A good shelf filler. Grade: 2.7 Estimate: $50 - 75
