WHO IS THE MANUFACTURER ?

Today we went to a "Bring and Buy Sale," and bought a small fuel cap with "R (logo) S" on it.

Does anybody know the manufacturer?

I know these are at least fitted on Ransomes "Light Motor Lawn Mowers,"  (Ransomes Minor & others)  with Villiers 2 stroke.

I believe R*S were

I believe R*S were manufactures of brass fittings. You see a lot of their products on stationary engines. Brass taps, oilers and such like. Their products come up from to time in the Stationary Engine Magazine. I think the R may stand for Rotherham. I will have to look through my back issues
