An early 20th century shop display toleware tea tin.

This wonderful toleware tea tin would have been on display in an old grocers or merchants full of fine loose tea. Finished in black paint which has 'crackled' over the years this decorative tin is complete with it's original lid which still fits well. There are the usual signs of wear and tear as to be expected from an item of this age and use but the fabulous central illustration to the front is still visiible, although inevitably it is a little faded. There is a paint run towards the top, as can be seen in the images, however this decorative tin still displays really well. 

 

Circa 1900
