This small lithographic tin was produced in the shape of a blacksmith's anvil and bares highly detailed artwork relating to the craft. The tin was made by the Macfarlane Lang & Co. biscuit company sometime around 1911.
The McFarlane Lang company dates back to 1817 Scotland when James Lang opened his first bakery in Gallowgate. His nephew, John Macfarlane, joined the company and took over when James died. The company would later expand to London and open Imperial Biscuit Works in 1903. Macfarlane Lane would go on to join forces with many other manufacturers to form United Biscuits in 1948 which still operates to this day.
This small tin measures 6.5" x 3.5" x 6"H.
