Plain Pot Lid and Base

Small pot lid with fractured base. The lid would have had a paper label. Pots of this sort were sold by local chemists, containing toothpaste, cold cream, bear’s grease and the like. Larger companies could afford transfer-printed labels, which had the advantage of not rubbing off if the pot became wet as such pots often did. (Toothpaste was supposed to be used with plenty¬†of water.) From the School House in Bergh Apton.
