The House of Thorne's



Here are the latest additions to my never ending Thorne's toffee tin collection. The bottom tin is my favourite so far. It is quite a large size (16cm tall x 24cm wide). You can see my others in this post.

More from my other collections soon :)

Hope you have all been enjoying your break! I have been very busy, hence the short post. Bye for now, Tam x

Oh Tam they are gorgeous. I do love tins. I have a Halls UK toffee tin that is actually a writing box, complete with 2 inkwells. I think I will have to get it out and do a blog about it today on my INKWELL blog. Thank you for sharing your Thorne's

Hi Tam, l want to watch the Chasers wedding as well, it'll be a riot. l'll just surf to and fro until l get a glimpse of the frock. (hope no-one else plans on watching the telly) l love these tins by the way, though l must confess l've never heard of this brand, and am wondering what era they are? 30's, 40's. Any way l'm off to check out the rest of your tins, thanks for showing them. Bron.

@vintageandartHiya Bron,

It doesn't look like we are going to be able to watch the chaser, I just read this in the Sydney Morning Herald:

Fair enough I say,

The tins are lovely, I'm always drawn to them, the more battered the better! xx
