A very rare pair of toleware biscuit tins in the form of vases decorated in oriental style. On one side both vases feature an image of a Japanese Samurai warrior, and on the other side a Geisha.

The top part of each vase can be removed. Biscuits would have been stored in the bottom half and, as the top part is sealed this could be used as a small vase while still in place on top of the tin.

The tins do not bear any manufacturer's marks but were probably made in England early in the 20th century.

Good original condition.

Welcome to Ginger Tom's Curious Eclectic.  We are a husband and wife team, both with a lifelong interest in antiques. Our business stems from the usual collector turned dealer scenario.  As our own collections grew, it became obvious we needed to redistribute some items in order to make space to buy new treasures to feed our own habit.

Buying to sell seemed the natural progression from this. We have been involved in buying and selling since 2004, but have only recently taken the decision to establish an online presence. We don't specialise in any particular area, but our interests do influence our stock purchases to a degree.

Our stock includes a varied mix of unusual antique, interesting vintage and stylish contemporary objects that would suit many different settings. Our key criteria is that we only buy, and therefore only sell, items that we would have in our own home and believe that if we like something, others will too.

Our opening hours are 9.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
