These late Victorian (c.1890s) stoneware beer bottles are wonderfully decorative pieces with a thick glaze and wonderful, crisp graphics / lettering. This example was for Ridley, Cutter & Firth's Extra Double Stout from the Manor Brewery, Newcastle.

Porters and Stouts were the most popular beer amongst the working classes... Many breweries also produced an 'Extra Double' - stronger - version. The transfer printed label on this bottle is wonderfully and intensely detailed alongside the typically Victorian swirling decoration and monogram it also has the additional phraseology; "Please replace stopper when empty" and "this stout is guarunteed to be brewed from the finest malt & hops only & to be absolutely pure." (they just don't advertise things like they used to).

The bottle has survived it's years in good order with no notable chips / damage.

The bottle measures 20.3cm high and is 6.5cm in diameter. The price includes UK Mainland delivery.

I’m Louis Walpole. Over a decade of working for and alongside some of the best antique dealers in the country at London’s renowned Portobello Road have helped me to form a detailed understanding of, and appreciation for, a diverse array of antiques. In 2016, after ‘dabbling’ in the trade since childhood I decided to follow my heart and (ignoring a myriad of people advising against it) leave my salaried job to trade full time. Since then I have travelled around England and Western Europe collecting the pieces that particularly interest me. These pieces loosely follow the themes of; automotive, advertising, scientific and industrial. I have a select number of items on display in Atlam on Portobello Road. The shop is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm and on Saturdays from 8am to 5pm.

If you would like to view any of my pieces in London, please get in touch to confirm that they’re at the shop or to arrange for me to take them there for you. It may also be possible for me to bring items to your home/bar/garage/pub etc so that they can be fully appreciated in-situ, again please just get in touch and we’ll see what can be organised."
