Ronald Dales Price guide to Black and White Pot Lids has been widely recognized by many as the main reference source for B&W lids. It was printed in 1977 and many more have now been recorded and found. The reference was in need of updating a small dedicated team of people headed by Bob Houghton (ointment book fame) have been working on this mammoth task. They soon realized that most regions in the UK and abroad had dedicated collectors. On approaching them, spreading the word in magazines bottle forums and websites, most recognizing that this opportunity was not going to happen again have rallied round and given support for the project. Now in Excess of 7000 images of real lids have been captured for the new publication.
We in Dorset have supported the project and ours will be pictured for all to see.
For those who may have a a lid which they think may be of interest there is still a little time to get it included and help the project. Contact Admin and I will forward any to Bob. Here are some sample pages for you to look at. Forecast to be in print end 2014. One for the bookshelf for sure.
