“Bottle inside oval” mark on British “Bowling Pin” style soda bottle

  “Bottle inside an oval” mark on the base of a British-manufactured “Ten Pin” or “Bowling Pin” style soda water bottle. 

(This page posted on July 13,  2019).   I received two inquiries about this mark within the space of less than a week! One was found in South Carolina (a whole bottle), and the other example was a bottle base found along a beach in Canada.  (I assume that base is from a very similar, if not identical bottle, but I can’t say this is definitely the case).

The whole bottle is an olive green glass soda or mineral water bottle, probably made in Great Britain (England or Scotland) during the very late 1800s or early 1900s.  There appears to be a faint letter “C” next to the logo, which might be a mold letter, or perhaps has some other, unknown meaning.

I created this page especially for this mark, so perhaps someone with more information on what the logo stands for will see this page and clue us in!  I have no idea what company it stands for.
