    I have a Bolten Supply Co. Bottle. Has the internal screw top. Have the wooden top also! Do you know anything about this?

      Does it say ‘Leddicott’ rather than ‘Endicott’? Green and Leddicott were a firm of ginger beer and lemonade manufacturers in Southend who used stoneware bottles for their drinks c. 1900.
