Milady Tin Box

This tin box I found yesterday at a thrift store. At first I didn't take it. The cross stitch theme looks a bit odd on a tin box. On the other hand, it does stand out from the rest. And the motif is pretty. So, I went back and bought it. Now I am glad I did.

The tin was made for the sweets company Waller & Hartley Toffee Works in Blackpool in the 1950s. Their brand name was Milady. It seems that the company closed around 1990.
