Thanks feltwad it looks like you have a a fantastic collection I think that Steven smith  or the family have clay grounds up in Northumberland and they also had a shop in hexam 

Now we are reminiscence yes I new both shops  The one in Hexham was in Hencotes   and the one in Newcastle was Friar  Street. I used to buy my Curtiss and Harvey  black powder there price was 7 shilling and sixpence a lb  I also bought my shot from the Newcastle manufactures  called Associated Lead Manufactures at Elswiick works that cost me 6 pound a cwt delivered. Yes there has a lot of water run under the Tyne bridge since then
