Product description

Gray Dunn vintage biscuit tin with original label - hunting / shooting / fishing design
 
An original c.1950s-60s* vintage Gray Dunn biscuit tin (empty) with hinged lid, measuring approximately 16.2 x 11.2 x 9cm (6.4 x 4.4 x 3.55in), in the shape of a tea caddy, with printed design incorporating hunting, shooting and fishing scenes; attached to the base is a large original colour printed label depicting the original contents. The lid is hollow, being covered on the inside with a flat sheet of metal (the compartment thus formed does not open).
 
Whilst the tin shows various signs of age (see condition description below), it would nonetheless make a nicely displayable addition to a collection of vintage biscuit tins or sporting memorabilia - or an appealing accessory for a vintage-inspired decorative scheme.
 
* According to a book about biscuit tins published in 1999 by Shire Publications, this tin dates from c.1979; however, judging by its general appearance (and especially the design of the base label and the printed lettering to the inside lid), we believe it to be somewhat earlier in date - although we could be wrong!
