    I’ve just dug one of these up in my garden. No seam on the lip, registered number 100848 embossed under the Bovril Limited logo & no embossing that states content weight. Neck is more than a little off centre/kilter so knew it must be old/hand made but would be delighted if it turned out to be circa 1890! Is that likely? Either way, it doesn’t really matter – if my sweet pea seeds ever decide to make much of an appearance this season, then it will make a lovely jar to house a few cut stems!

      Hi Kristy, thanks for getting in touch. It does sound like an early one. The bottles were being machine manufactured by 1913.
