Victorian "VICTORY V Gums & Lozenges" Oriental Themed Sweets Tin

A wonderful old Victorian era tin circa 1890-1900 with fabulous Japanese images. The tin has 4 sides...all decorated.....minor small ding...some small pain loss...and the lid knob is missing. The tin is 9" tall with each side measuring 6" across. Victory V is a British brand of liquorice-flavoured lozenges. Originally manufactured in Nelson, Lancashire, they were devised by Thomas Fryer and Edward Smith MD in the mid-19th century and were initially made by hand to ensure that each sweet contained the correct amount of therapeutic ingredients; ether, liquorice and chloroform. Victory V lozenges are still available today in specialist shops and online but no longer contain chloroform or ether. Today they are manufactured by Ernest Jackson & Co. Ltd. in Devon.
