    I have never really paid much attention to biscuit tins let alone consider buying one but when I saw this biscuit tin from Huntley and Palmers at a local flea market this weekend past, I jumped on it. Obviously there is a strong art nouveau influence going on here - a country scene at sunset, framed by tree silhouettes captures the period nicely. My research tells me that it is dated 1908. It stands 7.5” tall.

      Those English sure knew how to store their "crumpets" That would pass for finery for the table.

      A splendid biscuit tin. Looks free of dents and dings. (Those are not types of English biscuits)
