Description

111) An original WW1 Princess Mary Christmas fund 1914 gift tin. The tin is of brass and in good order. The bust relief, edge decoration and Christmas 1914 are all in nice clear condition and never polished so still retains pretty all original guilt finish with just very slight wear to princess Marys hair (see photos). It shows stress no cracks or damage. The lid opens and closes nicely, slightly stiff. The inside is good with much original finish but does have age related spotting but nothing too serious. The base shows minor dirt and marks which will come off.. These tins were given out to members of the British & Commonwealth Forces for Christmas 1914, the tins would have contained cigarettes, tobacco, Christmas card, small photo of Princess Mary and a bullet pencil although some had different contents. A nice original tin.
