These tins of unsavoury ingredients can be seen in the cabin of Charles Darwin as he sails across the high seas on a research expedition - although he soon finds himself in a bit of a conundrum as the Pirate Captain and his crew storm aboard in an attempt to steal booty! The tins are hollow and each made entirely from resin that has then been hand painted. There is a small amount of dried glue on the base of each tin, which would have been applied during filming to ensure stability. This collection remains in very good production used condition, with each container measuring approximately 7.5cm (3”) in height.

In The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists, Hugh Grant stars in his first animated role as the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain – a boundlessly enthusiastic, if somewhat less-than-successful, terror of the High Seas. With a rag-tag crew at his side and seemingly blind to the impossible odds stacked against him, the Captain has one dream: to beat his bitter to the much coveted Pirate Of The Year Award. It's a quest that takes our heroes from the shores of exotic Blood Island to the foggy streets of Victorian London. Along the way they do battle with the pirate-hating Queen Victoria and team up with a young Charles Darwin, but never lose sight of what a pirate loves best: adventure!
