Meredith & Drew also had factories at Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Brighouse, Cinderford, Halifax, Newmarket and Oldham.
The tin measures 9 inches, by 4 3/8 inches, by 2 1/2 inches and is the 16 oz or 1lb net weight (453 gram ) size.
The condition is good; it has some light oxidisation, scratches and marks, but overall is in fine fettle for the age.
It would be a super addition to any collection, excellent display or practical piece, or authentic period prop.
Thanks for looking and please cast a glance at my other vintage and historical items.
