Hudson Scott & Sons 'Grouse hunt' tea tin

Hudson Scott & Sons 'Grouse hunt' tea tin

An extremely rare lithographic tinplate tea tin, produced by Hudson Scott & Sons, Carlisle, England.


Dating from the beginning of the 20thC, it is decorated all around with a colourful vignette of well-heeled gentlemen on a Scottish grouse shoot. The full image wraps around the tin and shows two shooters accompanied by their highland gamekeepers, using pointer gundogs to drive the birds into the air. A very scarce and decorative tin with a desirable hunting theme.


The shoulders of the tin are decorated in a negative floral pattern in faded black, resembling japanning of asian inspired tea tins of the time. The intertwined pattern continues onto the original lid and is surrounded by a simple dotted border around the edge.


14.6cm square (5-3/4")

23.8cm tall lidded (9-3/8)


Some wear, scratching and a few small dents commensurate with age (with some sympathetic restorative touch out to the most severe areas), but a rare tin that displays very well with bright colours and lovely signs of age & use.
