This is a fine example of this genuine antique tin and one much sought after by collectors.
This one is in very good antique condition. The detailing on the lid is nice and crisp (there is one tiny dent towards the top edge - but very insignificant).
The tin is made of brass and has been coated with a gilt coloured lacquer finish, so retains its original patina, as issued. It has never been polished and is nice and clean.
The lid is hinged and opens and closes well. There are no nasty dents, just the one wee ding as previously mentioned.
These tins feature an image of Princess Mary on the lid - and they were presents to soldiers serving on the Western Front in the trenches in 1914.
The tins would have originally had a wee card etc and chocolates etc inside. Sadly - the chocolates are no longer present.
We do still have the rare little envelope containing the 1914Christmas Card from the Princess and a little photographic image of her as well - these are in themselves very much sought after and rare survivors.
The tin measures some 5 inches x 3 1/4 inches.
My price takes into consideration the finer condition of this example and the fact that the card is still present. I have taken a lot of images for your inspection.
