The Antique Pot Lid Collector
Very rare 1840's Hendrie's Bears Grease Advertising mirror that may have once been proudly displayed in a Barber's Shop
The Antique Pot Lid Collector was created by three specialist collectors who have a combined expertise spanning over 100 years. They are namely
Andrew Alsop specialises in Bears Grease pot lids and all Pharmaceutical items. Including bottles Page 1
David Treloar specialises in all advertising pot lids, with particular speciality in American and Australian subjects Page 2
John Foumakis specialises in muti-coloured printed pots and lids commonly referred to Pratt types. Page 3
The site was conceived because of the very absence of information pertaining to the collecting of Antique Pot Lids. This form of container represented one of the pinnacle product marketing components throughout the 19th Century and up to the Edwardian period. Many of the decorative styles and their design, can be traced throughout this period and creates a unique insight or window if you like, into the social and environmental lifestyle of the populous worldwide.
The three collectors mentioned are not only collectors but can assist you in making an informed decision whether you decide to sell or purchase an item.
We invite you to contact them with your enquiries.
