Vintage paper ephemera, English butcher shop receipt or invoice with coat of arms to add to a collection or use as part of a collage, scrapbooking or mixed media project.

No greasy receipts for Mr Wentworth, the family butcher of Pickering, North Yorkshire, in north-east England. His name is written in bold font and underlined with flourishes while an embossed blue coat of arms is taking pride of place underneath it, flanked by "Pickled Tongues" and "Home-Made Sausages".

Paper: 13 x 16 cm, clean; ruled with red margins, ledger-style

Dated: 1940s

Text on paper: "Telephone 46 ~ 194_ ~ M ~ Bought of W. A. Wentworth ~ Pickled Tongues ~ Home-Made Sausages ~ Eversheds copt ~ Escam in Tempore Dat ~ Family Butcher 23 Market Place Pickering

Coat of arms: Man in period attire (flat hat, shirt, apron, tight trousers, gaiters, heeled shoes) holding butcher's knife, and Woman in long dress and apron, holding a basket or milk bucket standing either side of coat of arms featuring a cow, a pig and a sheep. The bust of a Beefeater is at the top of the coat of arms amidst decorative flourishes. Man and woman are standing on a scroll with the latin words "Escam in tempore dat" (which in direct translation means: Meat in time gives. Possibly translated as "timely provision of meat")

I'm happy to combine postage with another Inklinks item.
