A circular lithographed tinplate tambourine biscuit tin" with four edge-mounted double half-cymbals, and a picture on the lid of the Pied Piper of Hamelin leading a collection of children.

The edge of the tin is decorated with red and yellow triangles, and the Piper is represented as wearing a green hat, and carrying a large vertical drum on his chest, and a beater in each hand.

The tin was made by Carr and Company, is identified on the base as The Biscuit Works, Carlisle, England, and appears to date from 1926.
