Labels from breweries you’ve never heard of: #8

The Coombe Valley Brewery Co Ltd was registered in 1905. This label would appear to pre-date that; the company was organised to continue the business begun by A.J.P & J.H.S Annesley and although the monogram is APJ, surely there is a connection with the previous owners. The company was bankrupt by 1908.

  • In my limited experience of Calligraphy the “art” of a monogram was to have a pleasing combination of the letters, not necessarily in the strictly correct order so “AJP” may be equivalent to “APJ” allowing for artistic licence
