George W. Horner & Co. Tea Tin |
The Horner Tea Tin - Nifty Thrifty $5.95
There's quite a bit of information about George online. Quite an artist! I won't
take time or space to tell.
Plates on shelves...all sorts of plates on shelves. Brackets hold up each shelf,
even the lid - the top shelf - is held up by brackets. None of the plate designs
are repeated and they vary from floral to nautical to pastoral scenes. This is a sweet old tin. I didn't scrub it too hard
for fear of ruining the images.
The tin's diameter is just under 4 1/2" and it is 7 1/8" tall to the
knob. It has a lift off lid. The inside has a bit of age. If you are going to use
this for tea storage, rather than decoration, as with any old tin, put your
favorite in a zip bag.
