Superb VICTORY V Oriental Sweets Tin Circa 1900

Absolutely fabulous Oriental graphics on this old Circa 1900 tin. The tin stands 7" tall, 4 1/4" wide, and 4 1/4" deep. Some mild surface rust underneath on base.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.
