The Herbs and The Adventures of Parsley

This is a set of 6 biscuit tins from 1969 - shown below with their official H&P reference numbers and titles.

A result of the usual collaboration between Huntley and Palmers,who made the biscuits,
and sister company Huntley,Boorne and Stevens,who designed and manufactured the tins   ( H&P Wiki )

They're small - only about 6" in diameter. And embossed on the bottom with "Huntley and Palmer Iced Biscuits for Children"
Although you won't be too surprised to learn that there's no known evidence of what the contents actually looked like. 

I've had to obtain permission to use these pics and was also happy to pay a small fee to do so.
As all 6 are in the possession of Reading Museum.

Why them   ?

Well,the Company was based in Reading,and when production finally ceased the Museum secured a large collection of their tins and archive material,with the help of the Lottery Heritage Fund.
And a perfectly justified use of such funds imho,as preserving our social history is important.

But whether you agree with that or not,these Herbs examples are as good a place as any to start your own collection.
With the main condition issues being rust and scratches.
So,if you're buying online,always be sure you're shown the inside and base,as well as the top.
