I came across this delightfully lithographed Firefly cigarettes tin .
I would think it Victorian . I have seen a Cigarette card dated from the 1880s but believe the tin to be later than that ..but .. ?
Unfortunately , this is only the lid of the tin but I am glad to have it .
What are my chances of finding a tin to put it on ?

Not entirely out of the question Ross. I've come across tins where the lid is damaged or the litho is scratched and worn, where the sides are still good. You never know, especially with social media.....something might turn up !
