Huon pine bottle case. Item 3670.
This beautifully turned Huon pine bottle case is stamped on the lid with the name of Allen and Hanbury, pharmaceutical manufacturers, now part of GlaxoSmithKline. The screw on lid fits snugly, as does the hand blown bottle inside(see the photo of the pontil mark on the base of the bottle below). The case stands 215mm high and has a diameter of 90mm. It is in excellent condition and would date from around the turn of the 20th century.
