All About Coffee (1922)
Toledo. The pioneer roasting firms here seem to have been: Warren & Bedwell; and JB Baldy & Co. Later, after 1876, we find the Bour Company, and the Woolson Spice Co.
The Bour Company was incorporated in 1892, following a partnership which had succeeded to a small business concern under the name of the Eagle Spice Company.
The principal stockholders were: J. M. Bour, F. G. Kendrick, and Albro Blodgett. Mr. Blodgett bought the Bour interests in 1909 and with S. W. Beckley, who had been sales manager for a number of years, acquired practically all the other outside interests.
The name was changed in 1921 to the Blodgett-Beckley Co., the officers being Albro Blodgett, president, S. W. Beckley, vice-president and manager, and Henry P. Blodgett, secretary and treasurer.

This lid, called Lobster Sauce, was made by the Pratt factory. Copper plates of some do exist. It was made in three versions and is meant to form a pair with another lid called A Pretty Kettle of Fish
This lid is included in Pegwell Bay Subjects lids made by Pratt. The Pegwell Bay lids feature shrimping, shrimps, shrimp paste, lobster sauce and firms associated with these items.
This particular pot lid was given to my Aunt Lily by her mother (my grandmother) and then to me. It would have belonged to my great-great grandmother in Ramsgate England.
It is still in its original round black frame.
