Huntley & Palmers: Biscuit tins

Huntley & Palmers' tins appeared in all shapes and sizes. The firm often designed them so that they resembled other objects, and they often did this so closely that it was difficult to tell that they were biscuit tins at all.

This section details the story of Huntley & Palmers' tins, from their beginnings in the 1830s through to the modern tins of the late twentieth century.
