Vintage THORNE’S round confectionery tin. Ancient Achaemenid design. 

The pattern on the tin is adapted from a 6th century Achaemenid silver and gold bowl. 
The colours are earthy greens and warm brown with four gold horned beasts on the lid, a central shield and matching shields around the tin’s sides. 

Small amounts of rust around the outer edges. The lid is covered in dimples - as though someone’s cut something. It’s hard to see these as they don’t damage the paintwork, and the design of tin lends itself to being a bit distressed. There is also a patch of old tape residue on the lid.
