150 year old Dewars

Postby keesha » Mon Jun 09, 2003 8:01 pm

I have a bottle of Dewars from the mid 1800's. The cork, cap, lable,bottle and box are all in excellent condition. Aprox date is 1860's. The box is made of a paper mache product and is tan in colour. Any feedback would be great. I have a bottle of Dawsons from the 1800's, with cap,lable and seal, but it leaks when tipped. No box with this one. I live in British Columbia, Canada. I would like to sell these items but I need some more info from experts like yourselves.
thanks Kevin

I am the archivist for John Dewar & Sons and would be interested to see a photograph of the 150 year old Dewar's bottle. Is it possible for you to email an image?
Best wishes

Hello Jacqui Seargeant, I sure hope I am repying in the right place, I am new at this stuff. Great to hear from Dewars, I did contact Dewars and they told me they could not help me. But anyway, I will get a photo of both bottles of Dewars and send it to you. This could take a couple of days, but I will reply. thanks kevin
