Hi All

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?


Cheers

Nigel

This would likely have contained Worcester sauce as it is the typical shape. Not hugely collected over here in the UK unless coloured (ambers, greens, blues) but like other food sauce bottles I guess they may well have a following one day. Certainly there are many to collect. I cant help you with the company I'm afraid.

Thanks John. Now I know why I can't find any images or references to this brand online - you bu99ers keep reburying them before anyone gets a chance to take a photo ;)

Thanks Torpey. I've seen ads in Australian and New Zealand newspapers from the mid 1880s listing "Pew's English Sauce". As I understand it, at the time, Worstershire sauce was sold outside the UK as "English sauce", so I think you are right on the money.
I just wish I could get an image of what the Pew's label looked like.
Cheers
Nigel :)

Keep looking, something will turn up eventually . I have dug a few labelled sauces, I cleaned them carefully and lacquered them, maybe one of these will show too.
