Embossing: Manger & O'Neill / Trade (Kangaroo) Mark / Echuca & Rochester // Lemonade. Base: AGM Monogram. (Victoria)

Type: Aerated Water Codd

Variety: Dobson or Four way type. Spun finished top. Aqua. 10 oz.

Era: 1920s

Height: 230 mm

Condition: Good. Chip to inner rear lip has been ground down, with some upper lip work done to blend this in. Not sure of the extent of this grinding work, it actually looks like it has been minimal as some of the original scuffs and scratches appear evident on the upper part of the lip at the front? In any case, work has been done. Polished. Some extensive scratching in patches internally for some reason. In fact, some extensive patches of scuffed scratches externally down the left and to the right of the trade mark as well. Some other scuffs and scratches. Some fisheyes. A few impact marks. A few pitted spots of wear. Even with all this, still looks quite good on the shelf. Last one we sold went for $1,205, this one will do as a good example in the meantime at somewhat of a lesser price I am guessing.

Grade: 6
