Local Cold Cream Pot Lid

Local Cold Cream Pot Lid

Printed pot lid for Sydney Count’s Otto of Rose Cold Cream (‘Chemist, Lynn’). Count took over William Wigg’s HIgh Street chemist shop in Lynn c. 1880 and commissioned his own lids for this product, although he is not known to have purchased lids for any other. His predecessor, Wigg, may have used generic lids for cold cream. Found in a ditch filled in 1883.
