TRESCO Flower Set
Pictured below is a page from a catalogue of a company called CLAYTON MAYERS & CO. LTD.
The exact date of this catalogue is unknown however as the prices are shown in schilling and pence, we can determine it is before the 15th February 1971 as this is when Britain changed their currency to decimal.
The catalogue pictures above have been kindly sent to me by a collector from Scotland.
The following information has been obtained from the Graces Guide to British Industrial History Web Page and I quote:-
