I am not sure if this is a biscuit tin or not. It is very similar to a biscuit tin made by Huntley, Boorne, & Stevens for the biscuit company. This one is smaller. It has nautical scenes on the top and the sides. The angled corners have flags and anchors. The tin measures 5 7/8" x 3 5/8" x 4". The bottom is marked Genuine British Tinplate manufactured in association with SARI FABRICS. (I have not been able to identify anything about Sari Fabrics.) Huntley Boorne & Stevens Sold Manufactures Reading London. The tin has lots of oxidation but is still a lovely old tin.
