Circa 1910 British Biscuit Tin, Crawfords, TORTOISESHELL
This lovely biscuit casket tin is made to look like tortoiseshell. It is unique in that there is a small compartment in the lid with a hinged lid itself. When I opened it, I was surprised to find a sample wrapped biscuit. The bottom is marked Crawford & Sons Biscuit Manufacturers. The tin measures 8 1/2" x 4 1/4" x 4 1/2". It has some oxidation characteristic of its age. Quite a nice tin.
