Does anyone know age and value of this bottle? J.E Miller Dispensing Chemist bottle from Grahamstown, South Africa. I can only find info on a blue bottle, which seems to be very rare. Appreciate any assistance.
I'm afraid that you're most likely the most knowledgeable person on here when it comes to South African bottles. That said, it certainly looks like a good one! Probably from around the turn of the century, give or take a decade?
don't think I've even seen any South African bottles on here , although considering its british influence at the turn of the century , it make sense that it have a lot of the same styles of bottles we normally see here
your best bet would be to find books on South African bottles if any exist
That style of maple syrup bottle was registered in 1933 (the base should say "RD 1933"), but they didn't switch to a screw top until many years later. The early ones had a crown top and thicker glass...
