That top would have had a washer with it, don't recall pop bottles with internal thread, thats not to say there wasn't any,I would lean more towards old beer or cider bottles maybe.

I dug one up on the allotment last week -
'Greenall Whitley & Co.' around the edge 'Warrington' across
the centre , confirming bert's memory for beer bottles !

It seems that they are remembered as being used in many types of drinks, what i can't remember, did the bottles have internal threads or was this type of cap more like a cork that was just pushed in, was the cap made from a material that had a bit of give in it and expanded a little to form a seal.

The 'other' sort of bottle top was the wire type which pushed the stopper into a rubber seal eg as the photo below (photo is of a mdoern version - found on a bottle of Australian curry sauce!!)

When I was on holiday in the early 1940's in a village near Crewe one of my treats was to go to the village Post Office & shop & buy ginger beer in a stone bottle which had a screw top. The Lancashire Botanical Brewery used stone jars with screw tops too.
