This truly delightful Welsh Miners Tobacco/Twist Tin made out of Brass is straight from the Welsh coal mining history book. Dated with the inscription 1912, this tin would've been a personal and initimate possession of a Welsh miner from the past.
The tin also has a circle of 4 horseshoes etched into the top, which to many the horseshoe was (and still is), a symbol of good luck and protection. This legend likely dates back to a particular blacksmith and his evil dealings with the devil. However, in the context of the miners, this was more likely a symbol of protection from the hazards of the mines, and any negative energy.
A lovely tin looking for a new owner to cherish it well into the future.
A truly elegant Welsh Miners Twist/Tobacco Tin
