This is a very cute advertising tin which dates to the late 1950s or 1960s,
It is in fine vintage condition.
It was originally designed to hold biscuits made by Peek Freens of London.
This tin comes from my own personal collection - and I used it to store by Budgie seed in - when I used to have these wee birds.
These tins don't appear too often now - and given this one is about 70 years old, it is in a quite fine vintage condition - perhaps a little shabby chic.
It is a great item for display.
This tin measures just under 8 inches in diameter and with a height of 2 3/4 inches.
CONDITION: The lid has an image of three budgerigars: a green, yellow and blue one. They are perched in the branches of a tree - the background is a blue and peach colour. There are no nasty scuffs or dents to the design - but there is a little wear to the paintwork on the raised ring or rim at the edge.
The pink-peach colour is also on the sides - and here there is a frieze of more wee budgies all around - no scratches - and the colours nice and bright.
The interior has no rust - but the original silvered tin finish has oxidised with age.
Given that it is now about 70 years old, I would say that it is just fine. Please examine all my photographs in close up.
Although the tin has a patina of age - the tin has been carefully cleaned by me - and is not dirty or grubby in any way.
