This tin is entitled Mexican because of the images of Mexico depicted on the lid and the sides. The shape is fanciful. Another tin made by H & P in this shape was Algerian. This tin was made in 1895. It measures 7" x 6 3/4" x 3 3/4". There is considerable wear but the images are still quite bright. The inside does have extensive rust. Very collectible and desirable tin.
