Hello first post. I would post pics but I can't put in attachments. The bottle I have is amber glass and its about 8 inches tall and 4 inches wide. It has a label at the top that says "Johnnie Walker Black Label". At the bottom it has a label with says "Extra Special Old Highland Whisky John Walker & Sons Kilmarnock Registered Produce of Scotland" There is also a coat of arms on the label that says "Confido" in The top label and "Gold Berry" in the bottom label. The bottle is shaped in a curved hip style shape. The original cork is down inside the bottle and is branded "Walker & Son Old Highland A.L. Whisky. I can't find any bottle like this anywhere online. Any Help dating this bottle would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Too bad that bottle isn't corked! :rolleyes:
Interesting find you have here...our contact told us she has to say that this is one of the oddest bottles she has ever seen. The labels date from the 1920s but they don't look as if they belong to this bottle at all. The label which appears on the reverse of your bottle is actually the foot label and should appear on the front of the bottle along with the other two labels.

The bottle looks to be a one piece with a plug cork finish so that dates from no earlier than the mid to late 20's as well. If it was earlier then it would have been a 2 or 3 piece moulding
