I am 10 years old and found one of these bottles in Portobello, Dunedin. It is in great condition. Can anyone tell me how mush it may be worth?

I have on of these, I found it as a teenager some 15 years ago under an old man pipe hedge line in Lawrence Otago. Although someone have hack sawed off the top of the bottle to make a vase or jar of some type. Obvouisly this bottel is probably worhtless now as a collector item .. but this brand of bottle is ver heavily embossed and quite pretty. The other thing is the long winded description that states the bottle isn't your property even if you paid for the contents of the bottle. An early day EULA like we see on software... only much much shorter.
