Bizarrely I can’t seem to find any information on the 3 Rings Brand who this tin was made for, so I’m not sure what it was originally meant for? The dealer I bought it from thought that it maybe had been the packaging for a toy, but I’m not so sure? The obvious guess would be biscuits, although I suppose it could have used for anything!
It’s a great tin, one of the nicest I’ve seen – I love the illustrations of the kids, with the occasional adult and pet thrown in. It’s such a great style of drawing, and the colours are so cheerful! There is some wear to the paint work on the tin, and it’s not super easy to open, but wouldn’t it just look fabulous in a kid’s bedroom? Maybe you could fill it with lego as per the dealer’s suggestion!
