Item details

A very attractive Thorne's Premier Toffee tin, with a very delicate picture depicting a little girl wearing a white floaty dress with pink sash and ribbon in her hair. Thought to date to the 1950's. Bottom of tin marked ' Thorne's The World's Premier Toffee, Leeds, England. Container Made in England.'

Contained inside is a collection of vintage notions on a pink and white theme (to match the little girl's dress!), including shell pink plastic (bakelite?)buckle, baby's white cotton collar, delicate butterfly embroidered patch, threads and buttons - all displayed in photos.

Would make a unique Christmas / Birthday gift or ideal for a textile /design/ fashion student.

Tin measures approx 8cm high, 11cm diameter. It's full to the top with goodies!

Tin is worn but still very attractive and lid functioning fine. No dints.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any queries.

Price is for Royal Mail second class postage.
Happy to combine postage if required via a refund after purchase.
