This early tin is a lithographed mustard tin. The size is small for many of the mustard tins I have owned, making it more desirable. It measures 7" x 4 1/2" x 4". The background finish is a faux birds-eye maple. The lid has a still life with a violin, horns, music, etc. There is a decorative scroll around the top of the sides. There are 4 ball feet. The bottom is marked C.W.S. Mustard Silverton. The C.W.S. is for Cooperative Wholesale Society of England. There is ware to the finish as shown in the photos. The top image is quite good. The tin displays very well.
