Listing Detail Tabs

This is a gorgeous tin - shapely, rectangle with bow shaped front. Beautiful colours. Black, with gilding and bright blue and yellow writing Raised embossed detail of the brand name and piles of sweets.

750g size.

Its only drawback is some surface rust, and possibly that it has no liquorice all sorts in it unfortunately. The rust is worse on the top of the lid. It has some tiny white spots there as well. Not sure what these are.
The lid is separate but is meant to open back. Both the little hook parts to enable this to happen are there and just need a patient person to line them up and - voila!

Bassetts was founded in 1842 in the town of Sheffield UK. It was taken over in 1989 by the conglomerate Cadbury. It is still owned through Cadbury's worldwide parent Monelez. In 2016 the brand was joined with Maynards to create Maynards Bassetts.

Perhaps the company's best-known sweets, the Liquorice Allsorts, were created by accident in 1899, when a sales person when showing a client separate tins of single type liquorice dropped several and mixed them up. The client so taken with the mix, and Bassetts with his enthusiasm, that they allowed him to name the mixture, so Liquoirice Allsorts was born. In 1926 the mascot of Bassett's, Bertie Bassett, was created; Bertie continues to represent the brand.

Will be carefully wrapped for the journey.

Happy to combine - just ask.
