An original antique Rowntrees tin in the form of a violin case.

This lovely miniature tin in the form of a violin case has retained it's delicate details and paint. It dates from around 1910 and has not been repaired or restored, we have left it in it's original 'as found' condition. There are a few small scuffs, marks and scratches as expected from an item of this age and material but overall it is in good condition and the paint still has a good depth of colour. The two halves fit together well and open as they should, inside there is some oxidisation to the tin but in keeping with the rest of the item it is clean and in good condition. 

 

Circa 1910
