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 is a perfect Christmas cake tin! It's a vintage biscuit tin from the Co-Operative Society (CWS), and it's huge, it must have held an enourmous quantity of biscuits! On the lid is a happy, snowy scene of villagers pulling a yule log through the snow. One of them is riding on top of it, whilst his companions drag him along. Another has a Christmas tree and a lantern and in the background we see a walled city. There are more scenes of happy villagers around the edges along with Christmas bells and snowy scenes. The tin is labelled C.W.S Christmas Assorted Biscuits.
This vintage Christmas tin dates from the 1930/40's. It's in very good condition for its ages. There is some wear to the edges and a few minor marks but nothing too drastic. The lid fits really well and, although there is some tarnishing, the inside is clean with no rust. This is a good solid tin, heavier than later versions. It measures 23cm x 22cm x 12cm.
There are lots more Christmas tins available in the shop.
