never seen that Guinness label before, To me almost looks home made on a Computer or Printer. Most Guinness labels seem to have what some people call Lot#'s across labels. LEON.

After doing some research I see James Butler had a huge well known Grocery Store Chain in New York. In a 1906 Newspaper Ad I see he Advertizes selling Guinness Beer. So, Could he of added his own label to these Bottles? Possible I guess? What does the embossed side say, I can't read it? LEON.

It is the J&B trademark with as far as I can gather has the name "Jewsbury & Brown" directly under the J&B

Hi John,

Sorry to dissapoint but the Jewsbury, Brown bottle is from a large manufacturing chemists in Manchester, England.
They produced various mineral waters which this bottle would have orginally contained.
-
As far as the label on the bottle is concerned, probably a 'recent marriage' of an old label and an old bottle that never originally went together.

:)

Thank you for the information. It was baffling me. Do you think there is any value in the bottle?

I'll have to agree with Old Wiltshire. Seems about right. I would think the bottle would be worth more with out the wrong label & label worth more with out the wrong bottle. The 2 do not appear to belong together. Just my opinion. others may vary. LEON.
