  1. Vici I’m surprised you have not seen more of these boxes, these two guys started the company possibly in Bromley Kent many many years ago. They were well known and liked when I was in the industry.

      • They have been trading since 1983 but with a different artwork on the box which I can’t remember what it looks like, I’m sure it would have Harris & Sandford in the design. There must be thousands of their boxes in London, Surrey and Kent.
