Dunbar Bottle Stopper

Thank you to Steven Young for writing (almost exactly five years after I posted the message above) and sending me two photos of a Dunbar Bottle Stopper that he found in a field in Rosewell, Midlothian, Scotland.

The legend on the stopper reads:

Around the edge of the stopper: 

In the centre of the stopper:
                LTD.  ALBION ROAD  S

Unfortunately, I don't have the resources to add Steven's two photos to the web site.  (That can sometimes take me quite a while and I'm currently trying to catch up on a large backlog of emails to be answered.  Nevertheless, thank you, Steven, for sending the photos to me.
