Dover-Kent:
Just received an email from gabriellabrigo@btinternet.com who says the following:-

I own an original ELVEY & CO DOVER,  glass bottle
found when digging my garden many years ago.
Is it an important item?
Please let me know
Thank you and Kind regards
Gabriella Brigo-Cowling BA NRPSI

Hope someone here finds that of interest.

I am still collecting old Embossed beer bottles from Kent breweries that have long gone and I here include an updated list of the items I have found so far. If you have any that are not on this list I would be very pleased to hear from you. Thankyou, SB.

I recieved a PM today from a member asking about bottle stoppers and dont ask why but I remembered that I had a Codd bottle opener for the company of Lyles on a shelf (See previous on this thread). The openers shown are made of wood and are basicaly the same apart from one which has Lyle inscribed into the top. This would have been placed over the top of a Codd bottle and would have been pushed down with the palm of your hand. This would then release the glass marble from the rubber ring seal in the lip which was held in place by internal gas pressure (fizzy) and you could then pour your drink. It would have been nice to have a town on it as well, but as it was found near here in Kent..so 'probably Maidstone' will do :) They are both roughly 1.5 inches across.
