Hi all, I am new to tin collecting and bought this tin over the weekend at a car boot. Its a nice tin from London but I can't find any info on Baiss Brothers & co. Any information about it would be great and is it a worthy tin to have in a collection?

Hi,
Welcome to the forum and to the noble hobby of tin collecting. One thing you've got there is very early with the craquleur finish. Probably 1880s.
Nice thing and a good find from a boot. All tins are worthy!
You may wish to specialise or just carry on hitting the boot fairs. Its still out there. I've found some crackers at boot sales.
Jez.

Great tins, your top one is nice and early, say 1890? JuJubes is c1910?

keep going, you have a good eye.

Cheers

PS. If you want any tins form the shop I can post about 50 or so for £10!
