This Brand was made for a company called Fletcher Humphrey's who were based in Christchurch, New Zealand...Established in 1892 as Wine & Spirit Merchants. The company had offices and warehousing in an FW Petre-designed building in Cathedral Square (1884-86, demolished 1971) and later operated a wine and liquor store.
The tin has a diameter of 4" and is 1" in height. In good overall condition...has a scratch on lid and light rust stains on base...not rust. The company also marketed the Fine -Cut Cigarette Tobacco in a Blue lid variation which we also have. The tins date to around the 1930's era we think. Quite RARE as would have been produced in fairly small quantities due to low population base.
