A charming keepsake tin filled with tempting stem ginger and honey crunch biscuits. The tin is decorated on all four sides, even including a gingerbread cat and dog to add a homely feel. This dainty tin recalls the Swiss gingerbread ‘Läckerli’, the name meaning ‘small and delicious’. A speciality of Basel, the gingerbread is packed with spices, honey and almonds; often used to make gingerbread houses inspired by highly-ornamented Alpine chalets. The vernacular architecture of the Swiss, Austrian and German Alps inspired the gingerbread cottage in the Brothers’ Grimm fairy-tale ‘Hansel and Gretel’ which, in turn, inspired the German tradition of making ‘lebkuchenhause’.
