Good selection of finds on the table this evening.
First up Eric's LILY SKIN CREAM. He dug this, complete with the undamaged gold bands. The description on the side
describes what it was for. Probably works no better than a pot of Nivea. He also found the DANIELLS GB, sadly with broke top, but the unusual thing about this one is the rounded shoulder edges. Don't know of any others with this, but could be wrong. His third find was the amber BOOTS TOXOL. Lovely sparkling condition.
Mick bought some fairy lights and this was the prize one amongst them all. Lovely amethyst coloured VR example.
He also brought along the Coronation Khukri bottle. Date on label says company run from 1959 so I guess it is a 1960's bottle. Not worth a lot but just a bit different. Steve bought the ALEXANDERS GB in an antique shop on IOW.

Johns contribution was the unusual wooden codd opener plus the ink stand. The picture shows the diamond reg mark on the bulk ink. Also in the collection was the small leather enclosed portable ink.

This two tone jug was found in a charity shop by Dave. In pristine condition. Apparently the company was a tea and coffee merchant. He also brought the hot water bottle with blue pattern, the WEBB & SALMON LANDPORT GB and the Muff warmer HWB from a car boot. His Allen and Lloyd pot lid with the writing 'Chemists to the Garrison Aldershot' shows it's early military connection.
George brought his Jacksons of Basingstoke box of notelets and this 'modern' amethyst bottle INDIAN VEGETABLE JAUNDICE BITTERS RICHMOND VA 1852 - If Only!!!!!
