Vintage French Pastilles Tin

Lovely old French red and cream coloured round tin which used to hold licorice pastilles.

Lots of rust and patina - just how we love our old tins - but all the decoration and writing is still perfectly legible and the lid still comes on and off quite smoothly.

There is a sticker on the side which says 'grains café á la violette' and the weight of 500g. The pastilles would have been the size of coffee beans and, I assume, flavoured with violet. Sounds interesting!

The illustration on the top of the tin features a sort of coat of arms with two lions and a crown and the name of the maker from Avignon.

The tin measures 6 inches in diameter.

Thank you for looking.
