An 8 3/4'' x 4 1/4'' candy tin has a lock with the key. I'm not sure that was necessary to lock up the toffee, but maybe to safeguard the money you drop through the slot in the top once the candy is gone. The top has two knights jousting against a blue background. Shields decorate the sides of this tin that stands on 4 feet. it's in very good vintage condition.
