Victorian Salt Glazed Collection With Ginger Beer Bottle

A collection comprising an Uckfield Brewery ginger beer bottle and several smaller pots and jars. Second-hand.

What's for sale?

This is a collection of four Victorian, salt-glazed, stoneware bottles, pots and jars in a variety of shapes and sizes.

The largest is a ginger beer bottle with screw top, stamped Roberts & Co Uckfield Brewery.

The other pots and jars would have been used for a variety of purposes, often ink.

Today they're attractive ornaments and combine well with other bottles of differing shapes and sizes. We like putting together collections like this, trying to match them to create an interesting display.
