A loevly 111 year old Huntley and Palmer collecable biscuit tin.
This one is called Canteen and dates from 1901.
Unusually it has a leather strap instead of a cardboard one which was more commonly supplied with this tin.
Decribed by the Reading Museum as
"Simulated straw handbag with collapsable cardboard handle and clasp fastening.
From the late 1890s, tins shaped as handbags and trunks made regular appearances (for example, 'Basket', 1897). This tin was one of the first of this kind to be produced. Later versions of handbags had tin handles in comparison to this tin's handle which is made out of cardboard."
It still has its clasp and other than seom minor wear and rubbing, it is still in very good condition.
Dimensions: 7 x 6 x 3"
