These gorgeous vintage paint bottles (empty) are complete with their original labels and original box.Three of the bottles have their original cork stoppers.

Produced by The Northern Gold Paint Manufacturing Company, Aberdeen, UK in the early 1900's. The liquid gold paint would have been used for stately homes to decorate ceiling roses and decorative coving etc.

The date on the bottles is 1928.

The bottle labels read:
"The Northern Liquid Gold De Luxe.
A liquid gold of unique quality in the form of a powder and solution, specially prepared and arranged for interior decorative art. This article is intended as a successful substitute for gold and metal leaf when decorative effect is required at comparatively small cost.
Specially prepared at The Northern Gold Paint Manufacturing Co., 8 Hardgate, Aberdeen."
Instructions for use are on the back of the bottles.

The lid of the box reads:
"The Norhtern Liquid Gold De Luxe and Preservative Lacquer." and a little label on the side of the box reads: "Supreme Quality Shade B."

The bottles are in great condition with no cracks or chips. Some of the gold solution has dribbled down the bottles which adds to their vintage charm. The original box is marked and worn.

These would make a great collection for decorative display.

The bottles stand 6 inches tall and the box measures 11.75 x 7 x 2.5 inches (approx.).
