I have been looking for one of these to add to my collection for a while and I got one today for a reasonable price.
Can I ask the forum members for some advice please.
I understand there were different chocolate manufacturers that supplied these tins and they were different sizes.
Could anyone indentify this one please by the dimensions length 6.25" depth 3.75" sizes shown in imperial in keeping with the age of the tin!
Not in great condition and lacking the chocolate but at last I have one!

Paul,

That's a nice item to have in your collection.

I have one containing the chocolate but I am not quite sure what to do with it. I am loathed to discard but 110 year old chocolate?? Suffice to say, the Ziploc bag came in very useful.

Best wishes
