     Picked this up recently. Still lots of pills present. Number 12 likely wouldn't be seen these days. (Opium). Anyone know what era this would be from, WW2 or earlier? Marked on rear of box Burroughs Welecome & co London Also has the British broad arrow.  Cheers Brian

    Brian,

    I have one of these in my collection. I think it is 1930's vintage. The bottles on mine have "Austria" in relief. I can only imagine they were made in Austria sometime between the wars and possibly used in WWII.

    All the best,

    Ypres
