Sold. I'm out looking for more but in the meantime head to the shop for more lovely things at www.handmadeandvintage.co.uk
This vintage tin by Barker & Dobson dates from the mid 1920's and once contained "Regal" Fruit Drops produced by the Barker Dobson company in Liverpool.
The exterior is in very good condition for its age with cream and red printing on a gold background. The company's name and logo are clearly displayed. The sides are cream and the base of the tin is embossed with "Barker Dobson Liverpool England".
Inside the tin is clean with no rust marks. On the outside there are a couple of minor scratches and wear to the edges of the lid - mostly to the left hand side. There are a couple of minor dents - nothing really serious - and the lid fits well to the base, although it is quite loose and no longer airtight.
This vintage tin would look lovely displayed and is a rare survivor.
