Have found some old England in my Russian home.

Relatively old of cource. I do remember them before 1982.
Rest is broken unfortunately.

At first sight the "England" mark suggests it was made after 1891, but before "Made in England" became the norm during the early twentieth century. Quite exciting, but... the company name gives the game away. It was probably made in the nineteen seventies. So, as you say, relatively old, but not antique.

My father has been a seaman. He has been a el/mech chief at roro vessel lined St.Pbrg-Hull-Antwerp-St.Pbrg.
12 days home out, Saturday/Sunday at home once per two week for many years. Suppose it was bought in Hull.
1982 we had moved another apartment but I do remember them in old one.
It is not antique of course since it was not communistically correct to do it that time
So as is. But it was nice to open old box with stuff like that.
PaulR, thorleyman and Clovis like this.

Watch further... It is not England.
It is locals from 1890-1910 because of label pattern.
I have strong intend to have some vodka but I have no at this moment salt herring at home which this bloody provocative plate is dedicated for.

Don't know whether you ever got this in the then CCCP?

It's a nice film:

No I do not.
Just for your information what I have learned from attached trailer.
That time we have never seen beer in small bottles in all. it is a flub which is not only one I think.
I like to see this complete movie and I would. Thanks.
