Just because it has a seal on it, doesn’t mean the bottle is sealed shut… This is an expression in the bottle collecting world about the applied bit of glass on the side of the bottle. So the term ” sealed wine bottle or wine bottle with a seal ” has NOTHING to do with the top mouth of the bottle. So just to make it clear the bottle is EMPTY. This is an antique empty dark olive green glass wine bottle from the early 19th Century due to the fact its been made using a Ricketts Patent 3 piece mould and then has the hand applied seal just below the shoulder. It is a standard cylindrical wine bottle shape with a very nice hand applied top mouth string rim. The 3 piece bottle mould was patented in 1821 so the bottle is from that sort of late Georgian Regency period. See the base does not have any makers marks or embossing. It has a hand applied glass seal on the front with the Earl of Mount Edgcumbe – LIVERY Crest which is a Boar pig and the Earl’s CROWN above. There have been a number of Earl’s of Mount Edgcumbe and the 3rd & 4th Earl do cross over during this period. No wonder they had wine bottles with their own family LIVERY crest seal’s on them being British politicians and other grand title jobs for England’s Royal family. No maker’s marks etc. I’ll just reiterate that this bottle is EMPTY, it has no liquid in it at all. It is mucky inside and I have not attempted to clean it out. Please take note of the close up pictures where you can clearly see through the glass onto the white background and there is NO LIQUID inside. In collectable condition with normal signs of age and use wear. There is an impact mark on the inner edge of the top rim and this has made a small crack but no chip. There are some fabulous air bubbles in the glass.. Its full of them…. Its mucky inside as well. Please see pictures for more details and visual confirmation of condition. This bottle in an Ex Chris Crabtree glass collection bottle with his inventory number on the base 562. 11 inches tall x 3 and 1/2 inches in diameter on the base. If you are a bottle collector of only top mint condition bottles then this is probably not for you. It will suit someone that is into LIVERY CREST – PEERAGE Armorial collections better. Scale is usually an English 1 penny coin which is 20mm in diameter which is just short of 7/8ths of an inch in diameter. MY TERMS AND CONDITIONS. In the title or description it means.
