Stacking lunch pails are known as tiffin carriers, tiffin boxes or tiffins.
Traditionally an English Tiffin or stacking lunch pail set includes 2 or more stacks
of stainless steel containers that lock together. Tiffin is a word for lunch or ‘light meal’.
Named in British India from the British tradition of afternoon tea, a sip of tea or ‘tiffing’ was replaced by the Indian tradition of an afternoon meal or lunch.
Tiffin also refers to a packed lunch or snack & a catch all term for a traditional
Indian lunch dish made from curried rice, vegetables & spicy meats.
Tiffin stacked lunch boxes or Dabba, Tinkat, depending on the culture.
Vintage antique Tiffins range from simple enamelware to exquisite & elaborate
decorated styles fashioned for the wealthy.
