Rose Tin Box

This little tin box was found at a thrift shop close to where I live. Someone had been using it to store their sewing kit in for many years. However, originally it was sold containing confectionery.

It was made by the sweets company Waller & Hartley Toffe Works in Blackpool in the 1950s or possibly in the early 1960s. Their brand name was Milady. On the side of the box it says "Milady - Confectionery of Quality".

It is the same company that made the cross-stitch tin box mentioned in an earlier post.
