Collection of 6 British tea merchant’s blend sample tins. These have been cleaned and polished to render them useful storage containers, and pleasing objects to handle. The surfaces are tactile - smooth with a light sheen. Unfortunately, the photos do not convey this well. Each tin has a tea blend sample number impressed on the lid and side, and some retain traces of red paint on the impressed numbers. These come with their original lids. The merchant’s initials “ A.A.D.T.T. Co” (Possibly “The Anglo-American Direct Tea Trading Company”) are stamped onto the lids.
Size:4” x 3”. Height is 2”.
