Some realy nice pieces there Liam. The stand out pieces for me are obviously the sealed wine, tThe Nixey bottle which although relatively common is scarce with the original label and the two Dublin cream pots.

you are very kind Colin, the Nixey bottle was salvaged during work on an old Georgian house ,it had lain under the floorboards for years,until i came along. the Dublin cream pots although different shapes from Nassau street Co Operative,were found on 2 different sites in dublin.can you date the cream pots. I am just blessed in what i do Colin, and i just seem to have the eye,when it comes to saving certain artefacts from the skip.In 35 years working for the same firm,i have come across lots of stuff that i find interesting, old signs, cigarette advertising ,period furniture,practically everything from the last 250 years.
 
Hi Liam,

With regard to dating the cream pots.

I have checked some of the newspaper archives I subscribe to and the only advertisements I can find for the Co-Operative Dairy in Nassau Street are some small ads from the early 1890's and I would suggest your pots would be contemporary with this period.

Kind regards Colin

Thanks again Colin, your knowledge and research is impeccable, and as regards to the Nixey pot , I have never seen another with the original label, which in itself will help others to understand what originally was in the pots, a lot of people thought they held ink , perhaps some did as well as the eggshell enamel for painting iron.
