This square biscuit tin is beautifully shaped with with curved sides and embossed lid. The tin measures 7 1/4" square and 2 1/2" deep. The lid has an embossed array of fruit and a crystal pedestal bowl. The sides are decorated with nuts and fruit. The background is teal blue. As you can see, there is extensive oxidation and wear to the lithograph finish. It is still quite attractive. The identification is a bit more difficult. This tin design was made by Barringer, Wallis & Manners 1910-1920 for several biscuit companies. There is a partial paper logo inside the lid. The squirrel and Finest Quality . . . and Warrant... are there. I do not know which biscuit company used this logo. It could possibly be Wright's.
