This biscuit tin is not marked and I have not been able to identify its maker. It has the characteristics of the British tins of the 1910-30 time frame. The shape is of an urn with a pull-off lid. The tin is covered with a copper finish often referred to as "Cyprus". The tin is shaped like a vase. The sides are embossed with harvest scenes. Two sides have a man sowing seeds. The other two have a woman gathering wheat. The lid is very bent. There is wear to the copper finish. Otherwise a nice tin that displays beautifully. This tin measures 7 3/8" tall.
