Parker's Classic Confectionery, Birmingham, England

The most amazing advertising collectable used by Parker's sweet manufactures.

A typical looking leather case from the outside opens up to reveal a treasure trove of 24 sealed glass jars - all of which contain different types of sweets, mints and chocolates.

The case would have been designed for and used by sales representative to take from shop to shop to try and promote their companies sweets.

Local store owners would get the chance to sample the confectionary straight from the supplier and make orders on the spot. The case doubles up as a writing slope for the sales person to be able to write down all the orders they would get.

The case has been manufactured in way that provides the potential clients with that Instant "Wow" factor when its opened up.

The interior is completely lined in blue felt which has been embroidered with:
"Parker's Classic Confectionery"
"Ambassadors of fine Quality"

Circa 1950
I imagine the case would have been used post WWII in a time when small business were beginning to find their feet again after years of rationing.

Each glass jar has all the original labelling. There are 18 cream labeled and 6 red labels. Each jar has an additional label on the back which reads what the jar contains.
