Collectables of New Zealand
Photos, mainly of my personal collection. For historical information about Grey & Menzies Ltd click here. Specific information on some of the different styles of bottles can be found by clicking the hyperlinks - codds, internal threads, ginger beers, amber crown tops, green crown tops, clear crown tops, syphons, crocks
When I first started collecting Grey & Menzies bottles I was told that they were regarded as the "the most common of all", a bit like the 4d stamp, so many around its hardly worthwhile. I think the 4 bottles on the left illustrate that there are some very unusual G&M bottles. As yet, I don't own any of these, thats a pleasure yet to come.
And then there's the clays & the soda syphons! I have just seen another clay GB. So far I have 6 different syphons, including a beautiful pink one, (or in the American terms Seltzers) but all with the same engraving - I'm told there are variations here, and I know of 3 different crocks.
Someone told me recently there are 36 different varieties of Codds alone.
