Catalogue Note

Manufactured in 1892 for W. and R. Jacobs by the firm of Barringer, Wallis and Manners. Carroll's original objection to the tin was waived when Jacobs agreed to provide him with as many examples as he wanted (without the biscuits) for friends. Nevertheless, the original tins are now extremely rare.
