Box of twelve retro vintage Christmas crackers (c.1970s-80s) (SOLD)
A box of twelve c.1970s-80s vintage / retro full-size unbranded Christmas crackers ("Contents - assortment of hats / novelties, together with mottoes & snaps / Made in England"), in red, green and yellow crepe paper with orange, silver and red foil and paper holly decoration, plus a sheet of six cardboard "Cut out Decorations" in the same style as the box. Each cracker measures approximately 27cm (10.65in) in length, whilst the box (which retains the original "£1.75" price sticker) measures approximately 56 x 28 x 5cm (22 x 11 x 1.95in).
There is some age wear to the box including marking, creasing, splitting to one corner of the lid, and wear to the film window; the crackers are pushed into a squarish shape with some bumping to the ends and slight surface wear, but are otherwise in good order and would be great for a retro-style festive celebration (although we cannot guarantee that the snaps are still effective!). Please note that postal services in some countries may refuse to carry this item owing to the gunpowder content of the snaps. If you require this item to be shipped outside the UK, please check with the postal service of the country of destination before you order.
