Description

1905 - ETNA PRESERVING Co. MELBOURNE - Considered a CORDIAL BOTTLE: ANTIQUE with a Hand Finished Neck and Applied Lip Usual in the EARLY 1900's from Australia

Although it is not in pristine condition, I have always loved having this bottle in a window with the sun shining through it. The tall, fancy neck with its 3 rows of different patterns make it an eye catcher for sure.

Right off I want to point out the major flaw, which I do believe was created in its making. On the shoulder is a rough, oval, discolored area that was created when a bubble that was formed against the mold burst. It does not go through the glass to the inside. It is just a rough bubble shape on the outer surface. I have taken some good pictures of this "flaw" so that you can judge for yourself. Also note, while checking the pictures, that the glass is cloudy from age.

ETNA PRESERVING CO. MELBOURNE is in the oval on the front side. Within the oval and hard to see is "Etna" in script and below it is a picture of Mt. Etna. This, of course, was a trademark for the company. By the way, "Cordial" was kind of a fancy liquor that was considered Medicine not just an intoxicant.

On the back of the bottle, towards the base the embossing reads: THIS BOTTLE IS THE PROPERTY OF THE ETNA PRESERVING CO. MELBOURNE.

There is no embossing on the base.

Other than the aforementioned burst bubble, there are no cracks or chips. There are a couple of little rough spots on the bottom edge of the base. There are no chips on the lip or shoulder which is amazing for a bottle that is over 100 years old!

The bottle's height is 12 1/2 inches while the base is 3 inches in diameter.

Price is $38.00 and very careful wrapping and shipping is $18.00 ($33.00 to Australia).

I gladly refund any shipping charges that exceed the postage and money spent on boxes and packing materials. Of course, I will combine orders to create larger refunds. Your purchases will be shipped within 3 working days.
