Pakenham History : More on Gin Bottles

7th September 2003

Hello from Kentucky in America!

My wife bought an old clay bottle at a local auction (see part of it in the picture, attached). We searched the internet for one like it and happened onto your site. This bottle is exactly as described in Chapter Four of your local history.

Do you know someone who has more information about these old bottles. We're especially curious about the marks under the jug handle.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
