Hello all! I found this lid today while walking about one of my favorite bottle sites. Its in excellent condition and is probably the lid with the most words I've ever seen! I've done a few quick checks on the internet but I am not able to find out any information on this exact example. Would anyone happen to have information on the date and other general info?

Thanks.

This lid dates around 1890 -1900 and is very common in the U K

There's over 7000 UK pot lids out there, and this list of new ones is growing every day. A new UK pot lid book is underway and hopefully due out for Christmas next. In comparison, Australia and the US have around 400 each.
