Collection of vintage tins

I’m carrying on with my Christmas tin idea with these great vintage biscuit tins – aren’t they pretty cool? I particularly like the round PBC tin that’s covered in illustrations of African wildlife – I don’t think I’ve seen a tin quite like this before? The Carr & Co biscuit tin is also quite unusual – it’s not that common to see cartoon drawings on a vintage tin, especially not super cool drawings like these! The Baker’s ballerina tin is probably more what you’d expect from a vintage tin, but there’s still something quite beautiful about it!

A quirky collection of biscuit tins – now all you need are the biscuits and you’re good to go!

P.S. All of the tins have some small bit of damage, but it’s pretty hard to come by a vintage tin in perfect nick, plus the tins are definitely in good enough nick to carry on using.
