    The name on this well-known seal was interpreted by Sheelah Ruggles-Brise, Sealed Bottles (1949), as 'R Hamley 1750'. Ruggles-Brise suggested that it was made in Nottingham because an example in Northampton's Central Museum was found locally. Two other examples are in museum collections in the UK and another was in the Berry Bros & Rudd Collection.
