One of the most sought-after promotional items is the Huntley & Palmer lithographed tin biscuit box that masquerades as a collection of the Waverley novels of Sir Walter Scott, “Rob Roy,” “Ivanhoe,” “Guy Mannering,” etc. Here is a remarkably well-preserved example, the colors brilliant and the “leather belt” and gilt edges in pristine condition. With the height and width of approximately 6-1/2 inches and the depth 4-3/4 inches, it is English and dates from about 1900.
