Fine star fracture to front upper neck is only about 10 mm long. Inclusion to right upper body has a bruised fracture from it over about 15 x 15 mm. Squiggled swirls to the surface are making marks, basically lines of tiny bubbles to the surface. Lower rear embossing has a bit of crate wear. Some fine inner dirt will soak out. A few fine scuffs and scratches. Nice embossing. Extremely rare, I have never seen one sell! In fact, not sure I have seen one at all with the Fourway patent details to rear, made by Bratby & Hinchliffe?

Grade: 6.6

Era: 1900s

Height: 235 mm

Condition: Very Good. Polished. Tiny upper lip flake. Fold in lip from making. Quite a few fisheyes and impact marks scattered around and the odd little surface nick as well.

Embossing is quite good, there are a few little nicks and some minor wear here and there. Tiny nick to base heel. A solid example of this rare country Victorian codd bottle - although Tocumwal is actually in New South Wales!
