Price Guide: Leigh Bottles

I receive quite a few emails asking for valuations on bottles from Leigh & Co, as its impossible to give a valuation I have compiled an approximate price guide of bottles, these valuations are merely based on prices achieved in the past and should not be taken as an exact value, prices vary on many factors such as demand, popularity, glass color, condition, damage, embossing etc. I have sometimes seen bottles that would normally only make £10 make double their value on eBay so its impossible to be exact, I cannot give valuations on other company items such as Matchstrikers etc as its very rare these come up for sale so its a simple case of what somebody would be willing to pay. I hope you find this list in some way helpful and I regret I cannot give valuations by email. Where possible I have added a link to a photo of the bottle that can be viewed in a new tab/window by clicking the link at the end of each description.

Note: NO bottles are being offered for sale on this page or website.
