« Back to Sale

Sold for A$2,150

J. D. Lyons / Trade (J. D. / L. (Within a Heart)) Mark / Laverton / W. A. Base Mark: M. (Western Australia) Aerated Water Codd Applied top. Four way pour Dobson style patent with four dimples. Aqua. 7 oz. 187 mm. 1900s

Excellent. Front lip edge has a 4 x 4 mm nibbled section. Left upper lip has an impact fisheye type mark over 3 x 4 mm which is slightly nibbled. There is a tiny surface flake which is thin next to this - barely even visible. Right rear upper lip has a tiny surface flake and impact. Couple of other little fine fisheyes to upper lip. A little fine usage wear under base. Couple of small and very fine fisheyes to the body. Some very fine and minor scuffs around the shoulder. 2 x 1.5 mm chip to the embossed heart. Strong embossing, some of it has some nibbles and minor marks, but in general it is very nice. Tiny nick to lower right lip. A superb bottle, we sold a Lyons codd in the last auction but it was totally different! This pictorial one with a heart is in great unpolished condition, having been found in New Zealand it has been unaffected by the acidic Western Australian soil. Is there a better example known? Grade: 8.1 Estimate: $1500 - 2000
