Antique Pea Flour Tin


Add colour to your space with this beautiful vintage tin! Perfect for storing tubes of paint and other creative treasures. This tin has some history…

This is a Symington’s pea flour tin. This company was founded by Scotsman, William Symington. In 1827, he moved to the Midlands and began a business selling tea, coffee and groceries. In 1852 William invented pea flour, a food staple that quickly became a mainstay in Victorian and Edwardian kitchens!

The label is a more recent addition and actually has nothing to do with pea flour. It is an Olney & Floyd Butterfly Brand Golden Pumpkin label. This label design dates back to the late 1800’s and is considered to be one of the nicest pumpkin labels ever designed. It does not feature any weight information as that was only required in labels and advertising after 1906.

How the pumpkin label made its way onto a pea flour tin, we may never know, but it certainly adds character to the piece!
