If British then it indicates it was registered in the 1960s.

Looks like a commercial liquor bottle to me.

Check 1960's home mags for drink adverts with the shape.

I think Frank's right. I seem to recall seeing these years ago but I cannot remember what they contained. They were made into lamp bases (after the contents has been consumed) using those push-in adapter things, as having a wide base they were fairly stable.

Since I posted this - I have been able to find out that it is an old Bulmers cider bottle from the 1960's - but I have forgotten the source of the information.  ::). Will try to find out were I got this info from.

Well, Google led me here - I have one of these too and I wondered if anyone knew anything more specific about this bottle please? The photobucket links to the pictures previously posted still appear to work and mine is exactly the same.

Am curious.

Thanks for your help

Am still convinced it is a Bulmers cider bottle from the 1960's. Where are you located Aquamanda?

I'm in Lincoln
I've Googled but nothing for Bulmers
I've found 2 on ebay but they obviously have no clue as to what they are either!

I'm not ever so bothered, just bugging me now lol - Did you make a lamp?  :D
