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 Christmas tin is bright and colourful and very mid-century! It's marked Elkes Biscuits, Uttoxeter & Cardiff. The lid has a scene of people skating on a frozen pond, with one woman being pushed around on an upholstered sledge. There are top hats and hand warmers galore! The scene is snowy, crisp and full of colour. The sides have more pictures of sskating and sleighs and the words "Christmas Assorted Biscuits". The top has the original sticker, 6/- for 1lb 14oz of biscuits.
This is my idea of a perfect Christmas tin! It's in really good condition with no rust and no real scratches or marks. The inside is clean and the lid fits well. There is one piece of original tape left on one side of the lid.
It measures 23cm x 22cm x 5.5cm so is perfect for holding a Christmas biscuit assortment of your own, or just give it to someone as a present!
There are various vintage Christmas tins in the shop, including a larger Elkes tin with a different scene.
