Very rare Victorian Meredith & Sons Biscuit Trunk. Lovely iron side carrying handles & the lid hinges are intact. To the front on the lid "WORKS, CHRISTIAN STREET, E" all you needed then for East London was an E no numbers or other letters. Christian Street is in Whitechapel today. Then the front of the trunk "MEREDITH & SONS BISCUITS. ESTAB 1830". Frederick Meredith & James Drew merged their businesses in 1891 forming Meredith & Drew so obviously pre dates then. I would say c1860-80. A lovely colourful decorative and useful piece. A few knocks over the years but a great genuine piece of early advertising. Postage Parcel Force 48 for £15.
