An absolutely super giant vintage tin box found at a French flea market which features old-world sailing ships - magnifique! There is a latch on the outside so you can add a padlock to secure it. A great piece of home decor.

Please read full listing for all details including measurements, condition and any other important details - if you want a perfect tin box, this is not for you - it is well used and old so therefore has the character to represent its former life.

Condition: good used condition with secure hinges and a shabby chic finish which includes rusty patina, dings and minor scratches; the floor of the tin is not attached on one side but that sounds worse than it is as the floor is solid enough for light storage. Please use the zoom-in feature on the photos for a good thorough look before deciding to make your purchase.

It is always advisable to look at the dimensions I provide rather than rely on the angle of the photos to guess an item’s size.

Height: 15.5 cm (approx. 6'')
Length: 41.5 cm (approx.16 and 1/4'')
Width: 30 cm (approx. 11 and 3/4'')
Weight: will be 5 kg category once prepared for shipping -
being such a large tin box, once securely wrapped it falls into a more expensive postage category. However, if you purchase another item/s with a weight of up to approx. 2.5 kg I can pack them in the same box for no additional shipping cost which will make the deal a lot more cost effective for you - contact me if this interests you.

Note: photos taken outside for natural lighting although colours may still vary according to individual monitor or mobile device screens.

Shipping includes international tracking – rest assured, all items very securely packed and checked before they are dispatched.

Important note: if purchasing, please assure your postal address is up to date.
