Vintage Tinplate tins came in all shapes and sizes, patterns and colours. In the 1920s many different companies used them for their sustainable packaging, reusable refillable containers and as a key marketing tool.
These were also popular due to their decorative appeal, marketed as a gift during festive times and used for fundraising for charities.
Now days they have become highly collectable. From large biscuit containers, to coffee and honey pots, lollies and chocolates to throat losenges to baby powder.
