This tiny nib box was made by a manufacturer called Hinks Wells & Co. in Birmingham around 1900. The Tennis Player is one of a sporting series which included Cricket, Cycling, Football and Boxing. It is in fair to good condition – fair because it is rusty on the back of the tin and good because the image of the Tennis Player is still clear on the front. It is a delightful piece of vintage writing equipment measuring only 45mm (1.5 inches) long by 15mm (half an inch) wide which I am sure will be of interest to collectors and sporting enthusiasts.
