Excellent. Rare variation! The usual triangle type Rowlands are Melbourne glass works made. We have had a Kilner made one before just once and it was damaged (Auction 13, Lot 130) and that had a different base number as also listed in "Thirsty Work", Jones as bottle 47, Page 708. So this is the first of this exact variation we have seen! Lovely condition too with just some light haze inside. The odd scuff and scratch. Great bottle! Grade: 8.5 Estimate: $150 - 200
