Can someone please help me with information on this pot lid.
I found this pot lid in my Grandfather's things. He has passed away so I am not sure where he acquired it. He was in WW1 and lived in Ohio. He could have gotten it anywhere. It still has the original label on it. I cannot see but a tiny bit of the image under the label. Has anyone come across a pot lid like this? Any information will be appreciated.
Very nice label on this and would think the label dates to the 1860,s to maybe 1870. The print underneath would appear to be from a generic (unbranded ) U K lid advertising Cold Cream . It would be a pity to destroy this label as is probably slightly more valuable as is than the transfer print underneath although is unlikely to be worth any more than around $50.00 as the lid is also cracked.
By protecting do you mean preventing them from fading? Keep them in a room that doesn't get sunlight, for example using blackout curtains. Or if there is sunlight don't let it be direct. Low humidity...
