Found in "the backyard"..(not mine),..and not found by me!...but the finder is wanting to know anything about the history of the "W.E.Bryant" company...So all you "bottle collectors"...any information will be appropriately applauded  ;D

Gidday Ohb1 , I don't know much about the company but the GB would be approx 1900 & the soft drink I would say around the 1930's  A bloody shame they are both wasted . The soft drink might be a good one to cut off & make into a vase or something , I am trying to do some broken bottles soon , were they found up here or across the border , it would be well worth having  a decent look for more there , Gazza .

Gently dig around with a garden fork or make your self a probe , you might be surprised & get a good 1 or 2 , also if you havn't allready run the detector around , quite often as you prob know there is a coin :) Gazza .

I've dug a few Bryant codds over the years - all broken.
