This tin does not have a printed label. Probably had a paper label at one time. However, it has a bull's head symbol on each corner. This symbol was used by Colman's Mustard. I am judging this is a Colman's mustard tin from the early 1900's. It is rectangular measuring 9 1/2" x 7 1/2" x 5 1/2". The inside is divided to make a great stationary box. The finish resembles a bronze which has darkened with age. The lid and the sides are embossed. The top and sides all have different pastoral scenes. The top has a stable with horses, dogs, and people. It is titled "The Reckoning". The front side has a man dragging a field with horses, titled "The Harrowing". One side has a shepherd and dogs with sheep. The back has a pen with farmer, donkey, and pigs. The last side has cowboys herding cattle. Even though two sides any identity if too faint to read, all are replicas of George Morland paintings. The tin is very attractive and would make a great storage box on a desk.
