I have here for sale an unusual, collapsible sandwich box.

Made of silver coloured white metal. (tin or alluminium?)

Riveted construction.

The idea would be to erect the box and fill with your chosen sandwich, then when eaten, the box folds right down so it fits easily into a jacket or coat pocket.

Lift off lid, the box when folded out measures approx. 6 inches by 4 inches and approx. 1 3/4 inches deep. Easy to fold down, you simply remove the lid, gentle push the two shorter ends inwards towards the centre of the tin, then gently fold down the longer sides, by pushing towards the middle. Replace the lid and hey presto!  your sandwich box now measues 6 by 4 inches, but only 3/8 of an inch deep and can easily be stored away.

Good usable condition, some scratches and scuffs to the outside as you would expect from use.

Could possibly been used by a gamekeeper, huntsman, fisherman or maybe Military.
