Macfarlane Lang Golf Bag Rare British Biscuit Tin C1913 Golfing Players For SaleThis very rare embossed British biscuit tin was produced for the British biscuit company "MacFarlane Lang" in 1913 and is titled "Golf Bag".
It was made to look like an early leather golf bag full of clubs.
One side has a gentleman golfer in his plus fours and Harris tweeds, the other a lady with her ankle length skirt and hat!

The last pic shows this tin; left, and the more common Canadian version which was produced for a number of companys; right.

" Thank you Nigel.
Yes I am aware that there was a golf bag sold on a couple of days ago for $1475.
However, it was a much later and more common version of this 1913 tin made solely for the Canadian market; also the graphics are different".
