In his 1995 40 page catalogue entitled "MEAT AND SIMILIAR EXTRACT BOTTLES", Anthony Helliwell did much to elevate a rather mundane section of bottles to "COLLECTABLE" status.

We have recently learned that Anthony has sadly suffered a stroke and has gracefully retired from digging and collecting. Chris Cheeseman has bought Anthony's collection and will be carring on his good work. We look forward to Chris participating in the website and our meagre 12 bottles swelling to a presentable amount.
