Bringing history back to life….
Once in a while we like to create something that’s a little bit different, something with a bit of character. We managed to get hold of some very old, vintage, Tobacco Tins. By putting some traditional styled items and adding some tinder, low and behold, you have an unique Tinderbox as you would have had many years ago. Its all about recapturing some thing from the past and having something special that has character and a patina all of its own. We wanted this Old Timer's Tinderbox to feel as if it had belonged to you for years and that it has been loved and used.
