    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.

    Maybe Trog can help you out! Here is a link to pot lids in general, notice the section about pomade. https://www.transcollectorsclub.org/...2002Winter.pdf

    Hi Tracy,
    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.

    Hope this helps David
