Place of Origin

Maker Lipton

Maker Details Lipton was Knighted in 1898. In 1890 Lipton began using the Red Shield. That means that this tin, with no red shield, but with mention of his Knighthood, was very likely manufactured within a year or so of 1898.

Summary Good

Assessor Hannah Lartz

Notes The gold paint has worn off on both the top, and bottom edges, revealing a brass under color. This is obviously the surfaces that it rested upon, and the top lid edges, were handled the most for openning up of the tin. Otherwise, only a few spots of corrosion, since this is a tin. Paint is overall complete, a few scratches and faintly wrote on the top is, "40=41"
