Ornately shaped tin with multi-colored scenes of life in Mexico during the late 19th century, in elaborate quatrefoil shape, produced by Huntley & Palmers, 1895.

A brief description by the Reading Borough Museum is provided as follows:

"The design of new shapes of tins was an expensive and time-consuming process for Huntley & Palmers. From early on successful designs were reissued with different decoration. This 'Mexico' tin is the same shape as the 'Harmony' tin from 1893 and the 'Algerian' tin from 1894. The skillful and elaborate workmanship behind the manufacture of such a tin is in marked contrast to that which produced the plain square or circular tins which predominate after the Second World War."

The tin is in good condition with age related wear.

Size: 3 1/2" Height, 6 1/2" Width.
