A very rare and attractive Carr & Co. of Carlisle biscuit tin was shown in the 1892-3 Christmas catalogue. All four sides and the lid have scenes from a Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale partly embossed, which give the pictures depth. The tin is in good condition, with working hinges, good closure and a clean interior and base. The sides have little damage but there is some rubbing and light scratches to the lid and one small scratch on one short side. The colors have faded a little over 120 plus years but the tin is still in overall good condition. There are no dings or dents and the tin is not out of shape. The tin measures about 4 1/2" wide by 3 1/4" deep and 6 inches tall.
This and several other old and unusual tins and other unique items were received from the estate of an antique dealer. We will be listing many of these items in the future. See the last photo for some of the items from this estate.
