Early Leigh & Co Codd Bottle

Erly Leigh

Erley Leigh 2

This much earlier variation of the Leigh & Co Codd is more crude in design, Embossed "Leigh & Co Salford" to the front it has the standard Globe trade mark embossed but the actual wording "Trade Mark" is embossed above and below the Globe, this particular example also has the added appeal of an amber marble, this is not a bottle that is seen very often, Photo courtesy & copyright of the Simon Ratty collection.
