    A new pick. I love the vintage advertising and stoneware, it's just a little guy only 16 1/2 cm tall (6 1/2 inches for our American friends). Just enough for the wedding night I guess. Not sure how old it is there's nothing on the bottom saying a year.

      I sent pic's of it to the Cornish Mead Co. asking them if it was one of their's. They told me it was but it's not particularly valuable. They were used in quite large quantities until the late sixties when the earthenware became too expensive to be viable. So it's at least 40+ years old.

      An update, The Cornish Mead Co. only exported product briefly into Canada through the Alberta Liquor Board about thirty years ago. They told me when they said that the bottle wasn't particularly valuable they meant in the UK market. For Canada it could be quite rare!
