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

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. :)
