This lovely tin has a red lacquer finish with oriental designs on the front, lid, and sides. It is shaped like a bin. The measurements are 6" x 4" x 4 1/4". The bottom is marked Baret Ware Container Made in England No. 198 Copy-write B.W. Co. This is vintage, but I am not sure of the date. It is in wonderful condition. Could be used for storing small items.
