This is a very rare and early advertising tin - probably for display in a shop
It is Edwardian in date; probably around 1910.

It advertises Thorne’s Extra Super Crème Toffee.

Rare tin, but with some condition issues, but displays well.

Would make a great item for window display in an old fashioned sweetie shop - or on display in a vintage kitchen.

Later Thorne's Toffee tins showing a little girl with her dog which date to the 1930s are much more common - this larger and earlier issue is now much harder to find.

My asking price reflects this ones early date and rarity.

Condition - red colour all red and vibrant. Some minor rubbing to the decoration. Gilding to areas still nice and shiny - with again little areas of rubbing - but more of the more fragile gold colouring is still present. No nasty dents or dings. Relatively clean inside.

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.

Tin measures: 8 3/4 inches in length; and is 5 inches wide (at widest) and with a height of 6 1/2 inches.

Fair price for this early advertising item.
