This is the famous 1980 highly collectable Huntley and Palmer Edwardian Garden party Ginger Nuts tin which has been commonly known as the Rude or Disgruntled employee tin. Folklore has it that an employee, who was sacked without compensation, took his revenge by doing the tin design based on works by Kate Greenaway with some added 'extras' such as a copulating couple in the bushes as well as a pair dogs engaged in a similar activity and a jam pot on the table with an interesting label.

However, the truth is that the picture was done by the freelance artist Mick Hill who said " "I did them out of devilment, purely for a laugh.I've always been a bit of a naughty boy but I've nothing against Huntley & Palmers. There have been rumours that I got made redundant and did it out of revenge. But that's not true - I was only ever a freelance. I just felt like adding a bit of smut to the proceedings.'

This tin has been known to make up to £300.00 in some collectors auctions so this one is a bargain and will only increase in value.
The tin is exceptionally clean ( pardon the pun) inside and out.
