Is My Bottle Worth Anything?

Its hard to decide whether a bottle has any value or not, a lot of bottles we receive emails about have little or no value, such as examples embossed with, Table Spoons, California Fig Syrup, Scott’s Emulsion, Bovril, Eiffel Tower Lemonade, Camp Coffee, Gartons HP Sauce, Daddies Favorite Sauce, Lung Tonic, Venos Lightning Cough Cure, Fennings Fever Curer & Halls Wine Tonic to name but a few. Even some of the bottles containing marbles within the neck (Codd Bottles) can only be worth a couple of pounds but with these it all depends of color, patent design etc with some being worth a lot more, we are always happy to help with a rough valuation so if unsure please feel free to contact us.
