 (Underside) "Barclay" London Made, Made in England, 762 GR
Wilczak & Colwell, op. cit. mentions three possible English origins for this label: Bond Engeneering Co Ltd., Comoy and Sasieni. The following clues speak in favor of a Sasieni's sub-brand:
  • Characteristic rusticated finish.
  • Cursive label stamping in quotation marks.
  • The country of origin "London Made, Made in England" in block letters and two lines. These stampings are typical for Sasieni's pre-transition period. Example 1, Example 2
