Sunny Spread

May 19, 2015

Regular readers will know that the theme for one of our 2015 displays is ‘Lost and Found’. It features many items that have been dug up in Market Lavington. Some have been found by people with metal detectors and others by people digging the garden. This jar lid falls into that category and has the hole made by a fork tine to prove it.

This lid, like the Bristol Dairies one also found recently, probably dates to around 1960. Yeatman and Co set up their Cherry Tree Works in Watford in 1942 and it was there that they made this mix of honey and invert sugar (plus colour and flavour).

It’s another item which might have been ‘Lost and Found’ but maybe somebody can tell us more about the product and when it was made.
