"Pioneer Brand Golden Flake Cavendish" antique / vintage tobacco tin (c.1900-20) (SOLD)
A "Pioneer Brand Golden Flake Cavendish" antique / vintage tobacco tin (empty), by the Richmond Cavendish Co. Limited, Liverpool, probably dating from c.1900-20. Measuring approximately 11.2 x 7.8 x 2.6cm (4.4 x 3.05 x 1in), the tin has an unusual "gold flake" finish to the whole of the exterior, with a black printed pictorial design to both lid and base, and a black printed design to the sides. The interior of the tin has a similar finish (although tending towards a sandier appearance with a few larger flakes); attached to the inside lid is the original yellow paper label, printed in black, red and gold with a pictorial design similar to that of the exterior.
The finish of the outside lid is lighter than the rest, perhaps due to fading; there is general age wear throughout including scratching and wear to the edges. There is a patch to the corner of the base where the gold finish has scraped off, together with some rust patches (mostly to the interior) and a small kink to the edge (hidden under the lid when closed).
