I keep my ground coffee in this old tin which I bought many years ago from a charity shop.

Each side is different although 2 sides are mirror images of 1 another. They are supposed to be drinking coffee and from the look of their clothes the period is around 1900.

If you turn the tin it looks like 1 continuous picture.

I don't know why 2 sides say Cafe and 2 Caffe.

I think it's great that you use this old tin for your coffee. It's very elegant. :)
