I have a glass bottle 182mm tall with the markings "EDW PEW & Co’s SAUCE” and on the bottom, “1295”. It was unearthed some years ago on a building site in Brisbane, Australia.
I have been able to establish that there was an Edward Pew located at Nye’s Wharf, Canal Bridge, Old Kent Road, Surrey, England, who manufactured vinegar, refined oil, distilled cordials and manufactured sauces and pickles. The July 10, 1891 issue of the London Gazette cites him as making an application from discharge from bankruptcy on 7 July, 1891.
I'm interested to know more about this bottle. What sauce did it contain? Anyone got a picture of what the label would have looked like? Is it common or rare?
Anybody got more info on this bottle?
