Hi, I purchased it about a year ago. It was apparently dug from the Cwmbwrla tip in Mayhill Swansea about 30 years ago. OK??

It's completely unrecorded...I believe Jim has made contact as we'll need a pic for the new!! It's a lovely lid and only the second known from this Leicestershire town...Jack Feast will go loopy when he sees it! Hopefully you can send Jim a good pic and its size please in mms...a great purchase so many thanks for posting!!

Crikey! :blink:

What the hell was a lid from Melton Mowbray doing in Cwmbwrla?

Lids are a rarity in Welsh tips but an unrecorded one form the other side of the country...?

I've probably got the same odds of winning tonight's £122m Rollover!:D

Great lid though - with this and the Oxford Blue flat back that appeared recently it's great to see "new" unrecorded items still surfacing...:cool:

There were Catchalls cream pots coming off there Mike, all the way from Cornwall and looked nice with the yacht pictorial:cool: Betts blue tops were on there, but not many, Neath items and the rare all white Trebuan Springs Llanelli ginger (cos I dug one there). ;) I got a front written Gwylim Evans quinine bitters too.:cool: It was a good dig in its day. :)

Brilliant find - what makes our hobby constantly enthralling…. and great that Bob can manage to slide it into the book.

Would like to see Jacks face - aaaaaargh!!!!
