19th century floor standing shop tin, painted green with gold decoration. The front shows a scene with 3 oriental figures, a man (possibly a shop keeper) standing behind a similar tin, a woman looking at something in a bowl (tea, coffee, grain?) The flat top has a hinged folding lid. The condition generally good, no dents or rusting, but it does show wear as expected, scratches and some marking to the top. One side, painted black, is very marked with scratches and rubbing. Circa 1870
