I bought a soda on ebay and figured it was a repro but wondered how many repros were made over there.
It's about 6¾" (17CM) and says Malaika & Patterson Limited Norwich & Swaffham on one side and large S&P Ltd on the other. It's ABM ten pin blob top in a nice yellowish color. Bottom is T.C. Co Lo and some numbers. I liked it and didn't care about age but would like a little more info if anyone knows anything about it.
Thanks.

ERIC...all I could find was it was evidently made in different colors...and intended use (?) was as salt & pepper shakers ??

or mebbe the seller just thought S& P meant salt & pepper >>>>?

Thanks Charlie, I saw a cobalt also and that's why I figured repro. Ill keep an eye out for some shaker tops. It's BBQ time and a couple on the table would be nice. Maybe pick up some of those laundry sprinkler tops.

I guess my main question now is what is the company and the prolificacy of repro work.
Also, how many Wheaton like Companies are there in other countries?
Thanks again, Eric
