Antique Huntley & Palmers Biscuit Tin Danner Library Bookcase filled with Books

Antique Huntley & Palmers Biscuit Tin Danner Library Bookcase filled with Books. This is one of the more desirable H&P tins with images of classic books on all sides - each side is completely different with unique titles on the volumes. It is a footed tin with hinged lid cover - all complete and fine. Measures 5" x 4 1/4" and 6 1/2" tall. Fine clean solid complete condition with no damage or missing parts, it does have normal paint wear as you can see in my photos but all the images can be read! It is embossed inside the top Huntley & Palmers Biscuits Reading & London. Guaranteed a genuine 1900 era biscuit tin all original. The bookcase is very much in the style of a Danner revolving bookcase which were quite popular during the same time period.

Huntley & Palmers biscuit tins were as highly prized as the products they contained and today they are collectors items. From miniature replicas of vehicles to tins that could be re-used as household objects, there were no limits to their ingenuity. However the tins were originally created for a more practical use - the airtight storage of biscuits so that they could be transported to distant customers and stay oven-fresh and unbroken.The Founding of Huntley, Boorne & StevensJoseph Huntley used the position of the bakery on the busy London to Bath road to his advantage and the shop quickly developed a good name with hungry coach travellers. The potential to sell biscuits further afield was soon realised and in 1832 Joseph Huntleys younger son, also Joseph, began making tin boxes in his ironmonger's shop which stood opposite the London Street bakery.The First TinsThe first tins to be made were large, square, 10lb tins which Huntley & Palmers then labelled. These were made by hand and cut from standard-sized sheets of tinplate weighing 115lb. A trained box maker could make about a hundred per day and it was not long before demand outstripped supply.Huntley & Palmers also made square 7lb shop display tins with glass lids. The biscuits were then sold directly from the tins and the grocer would weigh out the required quantity of biscuits into a paper bag.Not Quite SquareWhen Huntley & Palmers began to use the railways to transport their biscuits, they found that the square tins did not fit well into the Great Western Railway's goods carriages. Later versions of these tins were produced with one side slightly longer than the other in order to fit in the carriages.Garter & BuckleThe garter and buckle trade mark was devised in 1851 by Owen Jones. This design became the distinctive mark of Huntley & Palmers and was recognised throughout the world. The Iced Wafer shop display tin above bears this trade mark.
