A bit of garden archaeology

April 26, 2015

We don’t find much in our garden but this year my wife found a glass shard – clearly part of a bottle with just enough on it to be interesting.


There’s a large H at the top of the piece of glass which measures about four and a half centimetres from top to bottom. This H looks as though it must be the first letter of (perhaps) a company name which ran around the bottle’s shoulder.

Below and running straight around the curve of the bottles we have the letters CHE.


This could be the beginning of all sorts of things. Perhaps the company was in Cheam or Cheltenham, for example, or maybe they were a chemist.

Has anyone out there any ideas?
