This vintage tea tin features Asian designs of gold on black rectangular backgrounds or cream colored background. It is free of dents but does have some rusting and some signs of usage, which is expected for its age. It has an octagon (8-sided) shape in cross section, and the lid handle is hexagonal (6-sided).

The tin is about 6 1/2" tall, 4 1/2" wide, and has a lid that fits very snugly. On the botton of the tin it reads Peek, Frean & Co., LTD. London, S.E. 16. England. It also says By Appointment to Her Majesty the Queen Biscuit Manufacturers beneath a lion and unicorn crest.

This tin would be a perfect addition to your rustic decor, vintage kitchen decor or shabby chic decor.

Frequently asked questions about TheFabricScore

Look for a drop down menu to the right of the photo on the listing. This will tell you how many units (yards or other amounts) are remaining. If there is no drop down menu, it will say "Only 1 available".
Unfortunately, no. All my fabric is found locally and often in smaller amounts. Whatever is listed is what I have available. Sadly, I am not able to obtain more.
Yes! I am always happy to combine shipping to save you money. You can purchase multiple items with confidence, knowing any excess shipping you pay will be reimbursed according to my policies (see "Shipping and Policies" under the listing photo).
No. Some of the fabrics I find need to be washed before I sell them as they have been previously owned and will sometimes have an unpleasant odor. However, unless the fabric needs obvious laundering, I will often leave it to you to do that. In many cases, the fabric is found in it's original, unwashed condition.
I generally avoid fabrics that appear to have been washed multiple times or are faded. If the fabric is just too "cool" to pass up, however, I may go ahead and list it, but usually mention if the fabric seems to be, in my opinion, a bit faded or worn.
