Dear Stamp Community Family



Does anyone know this company logo "B B with a beehive"? I've been googling for a long time but I didn't find this logo. Maybe one of you guys will know more about it. Perhaps the company behind it and the timeframe in which this label was issued.

Thanks for any hint.

Best regards from Switzerland.

An interesting item, hope somebody has the answer you are looking for.

I will be very interested in background information for this item.

See below for another one.

Dear Jim

Absolutely great. But also a little bit strange. With the beehive I thought more of a honey producer, but not a yarn company. But other companies are strange as well in creating their logos (Apple for a computer makes also no sense...)

Thanks a lot to solve another mystery.

Best regards from Switzerland

André

Beehives can represent both common Industry, and frugality.

I also have a Thai seal (For medicine) somewhere, with a beehive.
Error, bad human memory chip, it is a De La Rue label,...no beehive.

Hi Rod222!

Reviving this thread because I was stunned to see the stamp that you posted. My girlfriend and I just discovered the same beehive stamp in an antique (1930s? maybe) liquor bar that I have owned for years. It is from England. The stamp was wedged in between a drawer. Do you have an insight as to what this stamp is? We are so curious! Do you know what it was used for or if it is collectible? Thanks in advance for help! My girlfriend and I will be thrilled to find any info on this.

No Nothing as yet, smeadows,
my guess it is a product quality seal, often seen on porcelain, medication packages etc.
They are reasonably common, I have seen a few,
Collectible sure, but value lies in the curiosity,
no monetary value.

Beehive and Scythe.

Thanks Rod222! Yeah, definitely curious about this. Learning about the stamp is one piece of the puzzle in learning about the history of the english liquor cabinet that my girlfriend and I have.

Here is a pic of the cabinet and a business card found along with the stamp (both wedged in between a drawer inside the cabinet). Tried to research the info on the card, but it is obviously very old. Trying to research the time period where they used phone numbers like: "Yarmouth 2814". We think the cabinet is from the 1930s, but not sure about the stamp and the business card.

The cabinet looks deco, so 1920s or 1930s. All-figure numbers in the UK date from the 1960s. In the 1980s, you could still see old shop signs with the letter type - eg MUSeum 3243) around. Like many English seaside resorts, Great Yarmouth has become more run down over the years.

Is there a maker or shop name on the cabinet?
