GORDON’S GIN BOTTLE Hi Joe, I just came across your post regarding the Gordon’s Gin bottle which you found. You may find the following couple of pieces of information useful in dating it. - The first is an advertisement from an edition of the Pacific Wine, Brewing & Spirit Review dated November 30, 1914.
It can be accessed via the following link:
It depicts an image of your bottle and the content of the advertisement would suggest it had recently been introduced to the USA. The second relates to the Registry Number mentioned and which is embossed on the bottle. This is a British Design Registration Number. The number 610,617 was issued between January 1 and December 31 1912. This does not date the bottles manufacture but when the design was first registered.
What can be said, however, is your bottle will date to sometime after January 1 1912. A useful link to information giving the dates of British Design Registration ’diamonds’ and numbers is given below the images.
I have just discovered something that doesn't make sense to me. When I am not logged in, my photo albums are not viewable to the general public who might visit this site. So if I want to send a link...
