Picnic set comprising two thermos flasks, a sandwich tin, storage jar, four cups and saucers and four spoons. In the post war period, with more time for leisure and increasing affluence, even ordinary people could afford a simple picnic set. This modest example by Sirram is covered in rexine and could be slipped into the boot of a small car with ease.
