It appears that from the twenties through the fifties the 4 ounce knife lid tin underwent very little change in appearance. Generally speaking, as pictured earlier and below, they were four inch diameter, two inch tall tins although some blends (e.g. Ye Olde Signe and Shell) did use a three inch by two and three quarter inch container. The bottom of the tins, at least in the '40s and '50s were stamped "MADE IN GREAT BRITAIN" (occasionally preceded with CONTAINER") with no weight stamping.
