I do love a vintage tin!
Especially one with a brilliant name ...

And it doesn't get much better than ... 

Polishes and 
Gives Perfect Grip 
to all Bowls

Stop sniggering at the back!

The Australian company, Henselite, were actually the leading light in the Lawn Bowls game, with founder R.W. Hensell first inventing the plastic bowl in 1930. 
They went on to supply all you could ever need in the game, from the bowls themselves to all kinds of accessories.

And that's where our heroic tin comes in, being one of those accessories.

Made in the 1950s, it has a fantastic design, with superb typography for the word 'Grippo'.
It even still has some polish in it after all this time, so you could have a go at polishing your bowls.

This is just one of many tins I've got in the ArtPix Storeroom, so keep an eye out for my fairs and markets and pick one up!
