Morning

Interesting thread and have learned a bit more about these tins, thanks to all who have contributed

From my collection, two tins showing both ends of the scale in terms of condition.

The first is in a velvet cased frame and is pristine with minor blemishes. Complete with its decaying Rowntree chocolates, it would seem this was sent home and cherished, being well protected.



At the other end of the scale is a well used example, obviously used extensively by the recipient.



Regards
Jon

I have never seen a tin in such perfect condition as this one. It's nice to see how they once looked. Thank you for posting this image.
