A large bright orange lithographed tinplate bucket toffee container, about the same size as a standard seaside bucket-and-spade bucket, with plain orange lid, made for Sharps Toffee. The bucket has reinforcements at the sides for its handle, which is missing.

The side of the bucket shows an illustration of the Sharps Toffee Sir Kreemy Knut character, with a parrot facing him on the right, and the advertising slogan "Speaks for itself".

This exhibit is from the collection of Sarah Leather
