« Back to Sale

Sold for A$1,450

C. Z. Bertheau / Estabd / 1870 / Bundaberg. Base Mark: BGW. (Queensland) Aerated Water Codd Applied top. Traditional codd style patent with two tear drops. Aqua. 6 oz. 190 mm. 1890s

Very Good. Coated with a lacquer of some sort which has yellowed over the years. The few spots where this has flaked reveals shiny glass underneath! This would have had some hazy patches only I would suggest, and so stripping the coating off will leave the surface looking quite good! Little impact to lower front lip. A few impacts around the base edge. Scattered tiny fisheyes. Tiny surface flake to mid left body. A few little pitted marks. Scratches to be found and some scuff marks. One of the E's is a little flaked, some minor marks to some of the other letters. A solid example of a rare bottle, we have never offered one for sale before. Grade: 7.3 Estimate: $400 - 500
