Wednesday 23 April 2014: Gin Bottle

The Great Antiques Map of Britain a new BBC series presented by Tim Wannacott is coming to Bakewell this weekend.
I've been in contact with them as they're looking for local antiques that as the programme title explains document the history of a town.
I was shown this today a lovely little bottle probably for gin that dates back to about the 1840's and is from R. Orme a local wine merchants that was located where the Edinburgh Woolen Mill is now.
I really like it.
