Wine Bottle, Mallet, Cockerel Seal, English

Wine Bottle, Mallet, Cockerel Seal, English, Image 1

This is an interesting bottle. The seal shows a cockerel which most likely is the seal of a tavern as this is less likely an individual's crest, though that is possible. The Cock Tavern was a common name throughout England. There was a Cock ale house in the Strand in London and a Cock Inn in Leadenhall Street, London in the eighteenth century and probably earlier.
