Tobacco Tin ' Dessert Gold' - New Zealand Circa 1920's

Tobacco Tin ' Dessert Gold' - New Zealand Circa 1920's
Made by The National Tobacco Company of Napier, New Zealand, Circa 1920 's-1930's. The paper wrap around is missing of the tins side but other-wise a very clean and tidy tin. Diameter is 3 1/2" and height is 1 5/8". Formed in 1921 The National Tobacco Company bought up the stock, buildings and machinery of the near defunct New Zealand Tobacco Company. The Napier factory was utilised to process the Auckland-grown leaf and the Riverhead Gold brand of cigarette tobacco appeared. In the 1921–22 season tobacco was grown experimentally near Motueka . The company had ceased growing its own leaf by 1924 and was depending on contract growers in the Nelson area and in Te Atatu, west Auckland. In 1926 a handsome new brick factory was completed, and in spite of heavy increases in excise duty imposed on domestically grown leaf, the company flourished.
