I have had this tin once before. It's amazing how the early 20th century tins were made to copy fine wood products. This large tin was made to emulate a Sheraton Knife Box with inlay design. The top has the Bull's Head logo inside a circle of various woods. The front has a large stylized flower. All the edge appear to be inlaid wood stringing. There is a hinged lid. The back of the box is marked J & J Colman, Ltd. Purveyors of Mustard to H.M. the King By Appointment. As you can see from the photos, this tin does have some condition problems. There is skinning of the finish. The lid has dents. There is a break in the tin at the corner of the lid. The tin measures 8 1/2" tall, 6" wide, and 6" deep. In spite of the wear, this is a great tin.
