O' DONOVAN / (straight) TRADE POD MARK / (curved) LIMERICK', on back written vertically downward 'THIS BOTTLE IS LENT, / TO BUY, USE OR DESTROY / IS ILLEGAL'. Below this is '(curved) SOUTH WALES GLASS Co Ld / (straight) MAKERS / (curved) NEWPORT'. Rubber ring at neck, and wooden cap and plunger supplied with bottle, missing. This bottle is a relatively rare survival due to the fact that Codd bottles were generally broken by children to get the marble.
