Description

More than a dozen Victorian-era footballers (or possibly ruggers) dash toward the goalpost as the leader with the ball finds himself tackled to the ground. This charming action scene appears opposite a tranquil beach vignette, with a brand logo in between for "1 LB. LUNCH PAIL COFFEE / EDWIN J. GILLIES & CO. / IMPORTERS & ROSTERS / NEW YORK." Measuring 5" in diameter and 4-1/2" tall, the seldom-seen relic is missing its lid and exhibits GD condition overall with commensurate age wear.
