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 lovely vintage tin once held a selection of Burtons biscuits. It dates from the 1960's and is part of their Merry England series. It would make a lovely display piece in a vintage kitchen or you could use it as a vintage storage piece.
The lid shows a clown and a funfair, with happy families heading towards the rides. Around the sides are four scenes of "traditional British life". There are two men fishing, a village cricket match, a gymkhana in the shadow of Windsor Castleand opposing fans cheering on their football teams. On the bottom there is a paper label showing the contents of the tin with the Burtons logo and a Made in Great Britain stamp.
The tin is in very good condition with just a few minor scuffs or scratches. The inside is very clean with no rust or deterioration.
This vintage tin measures 23cm x 22cm and is approximately 11cm in height.
