Unused 1930s England Middleton Cowley & Richardson Gold Seal Soda Cork Crown:
Beautiful crown!This crown is one of a collection of 160 bottle caps saved from destruction by an employee of a British branch of the Crown Cork & Seal Company. The collection had been a long time part of the company archives when they were deemed worthless in the early 1960s and slated for the landfill. The forward-thinking employee rescued them from their fate, took them home and cared for them for a lifetime. Over fifty years!According to the retired employee each of these were in use before 1938, back when Winston Churchill was just a lowly Exchequer in the Stanley Baldwin ministry. Back before WWII, in the depth of the Great Depression. Back when a movement in India, led by Ghandi was struggling to gain independence from the crown. Back when brewing and bottling was very much a regional industry.
