MAR 2023
The last meeting before the March Bottle Show. All fully booked and all looking forward to it. Just hope the snow has all gone and we have a fine day.
Jordon brought along the BROOKES & CO lid which he dug. Must be quite a scarcity. Another of his dug finds was this unusual J HOVENDEN wigmakers head mould dating around 1880. He also brought along the J SALMON & SONS poison bottles in two sizes.
On to Jordons minerals. First the lovely blue BRADFORD BROS NEWCASTLE flat bottom hamilton. The green HALL BREWERY ELY codd and the BARRETT GIGANTIC & CO LTD green cylinder.
The small handled jug was Daves £1 buy from a car boot.
The HOUNSOME PETERSFIELD GB was another of his finds. Was completely covered in dirty oil when he bought it.
Finally his small size HARTRIDGE HAMBLEDON bullet stopper. Never seen the small one before.

The two codds were Davids. the WILFRED ANDREWS WINCHESTER with blue marble and the TIGAR LATE ALLEN & LLOYD BASINGSTOKE. He picked them up at a car boot sale. Sadly they are both a bit on the sick side.
Eric brought along the BIDDLE milk and the French MOUTARDE pot.
Mick brought the lovely condition coffin PHIPP & SONS BREWERY DEVIZES which a customer sold him at a local market.
