    "The first flip-top closure was created by Charles de Quillfeldt in the United States, who filed for a patent on 30 November 1874."

    "Allsopp's origins go back to the 1740s, when Benjamin Wilson, an innkeeper-brewer of Burton, brewed beer for his own premises and sold some to other innkeepers. Over the next 60 years, Wilson and his son and successor, also called Benjamin, cautiously built up the business and became the town's leading brewer. In about 1800, Benjamin Junior took his nephew Samuel Allsopp into the business and then in 1807, following a downturn in trade because of the Napoleonic blockade, he sold his brewery to Allsopp for 7,000"

    "In 1935 Samuel Allsopp & Sons merged with Ind Coope Ltd to form Ind Coope and Allsopp Ltd. The Allsopp name was dropped in 1959 "

    That should give you some idea of it's age.

    Having visited England and Scotland back in the 70's,courtesy of uncle sugar, I saw many items that were of recent manufacture but were still made using old equipment, and techniques, that here in the U.S. would have been scrapped 50 years before. I was in hope of a slightly narrower range than 85 years. I do not know if Ind Coope continued to use allsopp's molds for a long period of time, as Ball did with Drey. Absence of a paper label if there was one could help pinpoint the date I am finding no info or images of this bottle on the net. So I don't know if it is rare or so common that no one would post it.
