Two stone bottles.

These two lovely stone bottles were dug up in Market Lavington. They are believed to date from about 1900.

These bottles were found in 1981 in the garden of ‘Chantry’. It is possible that they had a medical origin for this house was built on the gardens of Wolseley House and this had been the home of Dr Ives.

Any further ideas as to their origin would be gratefully received.

    We have just bought the same bottle from By Gone Days. It is a bottle for storing ink in.

Can you add anything to this or do you want to know more?
