This vintage tin is an unusual style coffee tin. It is not the typical old key wind, instead it has a slip on lid. “Camp” Coffee was actually an essence of coffee and chicory that R.Paterson & Sons, Ltd of Glasgow began producing in the late 1800’s for troops in India. This colorful tin has the older graphics with the Indian servant serving a kilted soldier. The same graphics and instructions for fixing and serving are on three panels around the tall tin. It has a slightly domed, slip on lid.
It measures about 11” tall and about 3 5/8” in diameter. It is in generally good condition with very light scratch wear and dents to the body of the tin and lid, however there is one panel that has a 2 1/2" scratch on the servant which is shown in the close-up photo. The inside is generally clean with a very small amount of rust on the inside bottom edge.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
