Edwin was introduced to alcohol by a friend of his mother’s who is an emigree from Glasgow ( which is the home of the famous Scottish drink and we are not talking about Irn Bru) to Bushey. His parents were invited to a New Year’s eve party in 1960. All the adults were given a New Year’s gift and Edwin was given this little memento on their return home. He has treasured it for 60 years and it has pride of place in his home.
Ampullae are not just from pottery in this century and new formats have been discovered.
