Kennett, I feel embarrassed with the site calling you a tatter. Truly amazing display. Same goes to you Relics. Eye candy of the highest order.

Thanks a million for showing.

Hey Kennett, are they Callard & Bowser tins with swans, puppies and lambs on in virtually mint condition that I can see!!? That is a bit of a special collection you have.

Is your user name a combination of your first and last name? I think my Dad knows you.

 Hi Hilbert

Yes, the Moores is a very striking tin .

It is English , but I don't know much about this company
I had a very poor example of a larger Moores tin years ago that was quite plain by comparison.

That tin claimed on the side panels :

" Established in the Reign of King George1V "
" The oldest Tea House in the City of London "
" Purveyors of Tea to the House of Lords "

 A large advertising Christmas card from Moores tea.  It's about 12 inches long, by 5 inches high.

Your Cadbury White Star Line Royal Mail Steamer, I've seen a Fry's version, exactly the same otherwise.

Hilbert -  Not sure if there is a set of the Frys Liners similar to the Cadburys.

I don't have any to show , but here are a few more of the Cadbury's .

Anyone have a Fry's to show  ?

Hi  Camwal 

That Moores Card is fabulous . A rare survivor I'd say
Is it dated , or can you date it approximately from the phone number shown ?

A lovely piece .. Thanks for showing it .

Are there any other bits of Moores advertising out there ?

This is the only other Cadbury one that I have seen that is not in your pic. Apart from one that kennett is displaying on page 2 here.

 Think I posted this on the old site - here it is again

A couple of years ago I had a call from a Book dealer that I had dealt with in the past.

He had been called to look over a lot of books at a deceased estate, in an old house in Tasmania . While looking through the shed,  he opened one of several shoe boxes.
Each of them was filled with sample tins and packets , many in very good condition.

When he asked about them he was told, " that junk is going to the tip this afternoon with the rest of the rubbish "

It had been collected over a couple of generations and just left in the shed.
He made an offer and saved the lot from the tip .

Quite a few are now in my collection .
Makes you wonder how much was indescriminately tossed out over the years

Here is a small selection
