This type of glass Pop Bottle is commonly called a Codd Bottle after the inventor Hiram Codd.

After being bottled upside down, the pressure of the carbonated gas in the drink forces the marble against the separate rubber ring at the mouth of the bottle to form a seal. To drink, the marble is pushed into the bottle's neck creating a popping sound. Codd invented the design in 1873 but it was used well into the 20th century and still is in some countries. This bottle was made by a Rotherham company and is marked to the back Dale Brown & Co Ltd Swinton. They made it for the Junior Army & Navy Stores and it was sold and retrieved by their agency at Aldershot. All these names are moulded into the glass. If the bottle was not returned, the cost was added to your next order. The Swinton Glass Works was built in 1852 but bought by Dale Brown in 1933. They subsequently sold it to Canning Town Glass in 1962. Early 20th century.
