We think this is a future classic… having said that, it probably already is!
This biscuit tin was sold through Marks & Spencer only this Christmas gone. They’re already being resold for £15-£20 (without the Swiss biscuits!).
It’s a special commemorative tin celebrating 125 years of Marks & Spencer. It was designed by Sanna Annukka. She’s half English and half Finnish – and the illustration has a real vintage Scandinavian feel.
It reminds us of this original 1960s travel poster we had framed to display in our Picture House Antiques centre pitch.
Not only the general style, but also the landscapes and even the colours.
The poster entitled Carefree by Coach is signed by ‘Bigg’. We have to confess, we’ve not been able to find out anything about him or her… but it’s a fantastic illustration.
We might have been tempted to pack a flask & sandwiches… and hop on board for our ‘carefree’ trip through the countryside!
