Antique Victory V Clock Tin English-biscuit C 1900 C 1910's. Runs But Spotty For Sale
An exceptional and very rare Clock Tin for Victory V Cough Lozenges. The clock cover on the back says "This container is used for our World Famous Victory V Gums& lozenges - The World's Winter Sweetmeats- there is nothing just like Victory". Manufactured at Fryer & Co., Victory Factories, Nelson Lanc., England. The clock can be wound and runs for 30 hours. It is working but is very old (100yrs) so we do not recommend winding it every day, just use for special occasions. The tin is lithographed with a country scene on the front-trees and a cottage and hills behind. The colors are muted and very restful-browns, golds and greens with gold border highlights. On each side is a gold lion faux "handle" just like other mantel clocks. This clock would be filled with the cough lozenges and when they were sold, the shopkeeper could keep the clock for his own use or sell it. These cough lozenges were very popular as they contained Ether, cholorform and licorice. Tasty and no pain after taking them! A short historywill be included with the tin to the lucky look beautiful on a mantel! In my40 yrs collecting I hold this as very special and am sorry to have to part, but medical issues must be handled.
