    This is probably my favourite item. I purchased it around january / february 2013, it was part of a big lot a friend of mine & me bought (20 tinboxes). We found the lot on the internet and it was really cheap (6 pesos per item, less than one dollar). I love the painting on it and - even though it is a little bit old- how well is preserved.
    Apparently, it contained 226gr of Ceylan tea

      I love these English tea tins, I buy them when I see them at thrift shops. :)

      I never thought about these being collectable. I keep nuts and bolts in them out in my shop. I need to look them over....I know I have a couple old Disney tins out there.
