Brief Description: Round drum-shaped tin with photograph on sides Twiglet biscuits and of trees against white background. Product name black lettering. Manufacturer's name also in black within cook's hat motif on a red square background
Subject Date: 1969 - 1973
Creator: Not known
Publisher: Peek Frean
Full Description: A Peek Frean tin which shares many design features with Huntley & Palmers tins produced for similar savoury biscuits. Compare this tin with similarly shaped ones such as the 'Tomato Sticks' tin of 1964 to 1965, or the 'Cheese Sticks' tin of 1962-1963. The use of a visual pun on this tin - the silhouetted, twiggy trees - is unusual and was, unfortunately dropped in the Twiglets drum-shaped tin which suceeded this one from 1974-1980.
