    RE: Robert Turlington's Balsam Of Life

    Hi all. Picked up this early pontilled almost clear glass Turlingtons just days ago which is very crude with a thin flared lip.This bottle was found near London at Rochester in Kent (England)under some floor boards in an old chemist shop.
    Here's some pictures. Kindest regards Wayne Wood.

    Welcome Wayne,

    Nice Turlington's, sir.

    Awesome Turlington Wayne! Looks like a late 18th century type. Hows the embossing on the sides read? Welcome to the site.

    The bottle stands 2 5/8", the diagonal mold seam stops on the shoulder.

    The base mark and fount for same strongly suggests to me English. it's a later turlingtons, as it's not pontiled. But I'm no expert in English bottles.
