    Only a few pontiled meds, there is an earlier Archdeacon with a rectangular slugplate we have a shard of, dating to 1847 when he first started bottling his own mineral water from his property, before that he let others bottle and sell it. A whole example has never been found of the 1847 variant, just the single shard... The Bowden bottles are all great, he sold Cherry Beer, so the red quart blob was most likely for that.

    Except for some early meds the Archdeacon's are the only known pontiled soda/beer bottles. Bowden was known for his Cherry Beer, and this Only Known example appears to be for that product based on the color, once it's cleaned I'm having the lip repaired...
