Description

25) A good original tin complete with original contents. An interesting wartime product to be painted on class windows and supposebly stop glass from shattering during air raids etc. It seems the glass would be stuck together with a painted on film of the varnish and prevent of from sending shards everywhere. The tin is good. The lid shows surface rust and dust. The original paper label has darkened with age and has one hole to it under the “I” of varnish. All is still strong but needs to be handled with care. it measures 3 1/4 inches high X 3 inches across.
we have never seen a tin of this before. it seems the Australian produced similar. See the following link
