Have you got one of these brewery trays from Alford tucked away in the attic or garage?
If so we know a man who would like to get hold of it!
Richard Percival collects mainly pre-war bewery memorabilia including ceramic coasters, ashtrays, jugs, matchstrikers and bells.
However his biggest passion is collecting British brewery trays which pre-date 1970.
He said: “I have Britain’s, if not the world’s, largest collection of brewery trays totalling around 1,200 some of which date from the 1870’s. I have been collecting for over 30 years, 350 of my best trays are displayed in a converted barn in Leicestershire which is effectively a mini museum.
“The collection has recently appreared on BBC’s Antiques Road Trip.
“For two years I have painstakingly photographed and listed each and every tray on a website. The website name is www.brewerytrays.co.uk
“The part that I have not completed is the manufacturers. Whilst researching this area I was shocked, surprised and excited to find out that a company called B.A.T Co Ltd manufactured a Lincolnshire tray that I have been chasing for 30 years!
“I was starting to convince myself that a tray from Soulby, Sons & Winch from Alford did not exist.
“The brewery actually owned 83 public houses before it’s takeover by J W Green Ltd in 1951, it was closed a year later.
“I would really like to add it to my collection. Can any reader help me?”
