A dramatically pretty round biscuit tin decorated with lace-bordered bold pink Japanese peony flowers on a black background. The tin was made in England by William Crawford & Sons Ltd and measures 10-1/4 inches diameter by 3-1/2 inches deep. The recessed lid fits flush against the rim and pulls off (rather than fitting over the rim with a flange edge). I'm not sure of the exact age but it's no later than 1950s,
There is a flat ding to the bottom rim edge, visible at the lower right edge in the second photo. The third picture shows where someone's name was lightly scratched into the black litho near the upper rim. Other than these two minor wear issues, the eye-catching tin displays wonderfully.
